Re: Community Room

In the future I would like to read another book by Willa Cather? My Antonia was the
only book by Willa Cather that I read. What would you recommend? TIA

Re: Community Room

I really liked The Professor's House, which is a nicely structured, short novel that she wrote 7 yrs after My Antonia.

I'd also like to know what other Cather books people like.


Here's a description of The Professor's House from this cite
http://cather.unl.edu/scholarship/mt/Spring2003/profhouse.html:

"First appearing in 1925, The Professor’s House tells the story of university professor Godfrey St. Peter, whose growing resistance to the economic bickering and consumerist tendencies he encounters in colleagues and family ripens into general despondency. Cather divided her novel into three parts. The first describes the professor’s relationship to his family; the third presents the enervation and partial restoration of the professor’s joie de vivre. Inserted between these two sections is “Tom Outland’s Story,” an account, told in Tom’s voice, of his discovery of archeologically rich cliff dwellings in the American southwest, and of his failure to preserve the artifacts against a rising tide of venality."

Re: other Cather books

I have read one other Cather novel: ALEXANDER'S BRIDGE. It is likewise excellent.
