Summer Book

What I need for this summer's class is a novelette with some years on it that has some critical material written about it. The last paper in the class is the segue to the research class. I usually require students to use two critical commentaries or so and do a works cited. Therefore, it cannot be a brand new or popular piece, unless the popular piece has some critical commentaries written about it. For example, I often teach Octavia Butler's story science fiction "Bloodchild" in my slavery class. I could use that piece in this class because there is her preface to the piece and one or two commentaries on it. I will tell the bookstore to cancel the James.
