Mays, Kelly J. The Norton Introduction to Literature: Portable 13th Edition. New York: W.W. Norton, 2020.
I received this unasked-for examination copy yesterday in my school mailbox on the last day I was allowed to be on campus due to the current pandemic. It’s always nice to get free books, and the timing of acquiring this one was especially fortunate considering that it arrived just in time and that new reading material will be at a premium for the forseeable future.
Randall, Margaret. I Never Left Home: Poet, Feminist, Revolutionary; A Memoir of Time & Place. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2020.
I had never heard of Randall until receiving a promotional email about this book from the publisher. I ordered an exam copy because I am hoping the book will be a good fit for a Literature of Revolution course that I am planning to teach next school year.
