I recently received some desk copies of books I will be teaching next semester. Baldwin’s and McClatchy’s are for a Queer Literature course and Atwood’s and Smith’s are for a Literature and Religion course. I’ve taught the latter two a number of times, but it will be my first time teaching the first two, although I have taught some of Baldwin’s other novels before.
Atwood, Margaret. The Handmaid’s Tale. 1986. New York: Anchor Books, 2017.
Baldwin, James. Giovanni’s Room. 1956. New York: Vintage Books, 2013.
