About A.M. Harte

A.M. Harte writes twisted speculative fiction, such as the post-apocalyptic Above Ground and the zombie love anthology Hungry For You. She is excellent at missing deadlines, has long forgotten what ‘free time’ means, and is utterly addicted to chocolate.

    Oh girl you need to read Life of Pi. I also loved Madame Bovary, but likely because I found her whiny sense of royal entitlement to be utterly hilarious.

    … Why is Lady Chatterly’s Lover not on there? I’d consider it one of those great novels that aren’t a must because they’re good, but because they’ve had a profound impact on literature in general. HARUMPH.
