Dark Orpheus's Reading List

I have drawn up the reading list for the challenge. My goal will be to read as many titles on the list as possible. If I do find anything interesting along the way, I might just throw it into the mix:

  1. Janet Frame, Owls Do Cry
  2. Italo Svevo, Zeno's Conscience; As a Man Grows Older
  3. Freya Stark, The Southern Gates of Arabia
  4. G.K. Chesterton, The Man Who Was Thursday; Any of the Father Brown mysteries
  5. May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude
  6. Malcolm Lowry, Under the Volcano
  7. Djuna Barnes, Nightwood
  8. Radclyffe Hall, Well of Loneliness
  9. W. Somerset Maugham, The Razor's Edge; Of Human Bondage; The Magician; The Moon and Sixpence

Reach for the skies, I say.

I notice that the Djuna Barnes pick seems to be Nightwood but I was thinking of trying some of her plays. I've developed a renewed interest in the form, which may or may not work out.
