    Curtis Sittenfeld

    Top Ten Books

    American writer Curtis Sittenfeld has authored five novels: “Prep,” “The Man of My Dreams,” “Sisterland,” “Eligable,” and “American Wife,” which offers a fictionalized story based on former First Lady Laura Bush, though she will not be writing a fictionalized story based on the current First Lady. “To allow [the current administration] to take up my writing time too feels like I would be giving up something very precious. I don’t want to think about Trump more than I already am,” Sittenfeld told the Guardian. Instead she gives valuable mental real estate to authors like Alice Munro, Mona Simpson, and Ian McEwan, who make up her One Grand list below. Below are Curtis Sittenfeld's favorite books, available to purchase individually or as a set. See the full list...
