I just read the The one movie guaranteed to make the men cry thread, and now I’m in the mood for weepy fiction. I started a thread like this a year ago, and I want more. It can be tears from laughter or tears from sadness; I don’t care. I want some books/short stories/words that have the power to . . . *move * you.
My nominations? The World According to Garp, On the Beach, The Doomsday Book (oh, Mary!), The Land Remembers, and a poem by Charles Kingsley I’m ashamed to mention because it’s so very, very corny. For funny, I nominate Lake Wobegon Days (for sadness, too, actually) and most of what I’ve read so far by Terry Pratchett. There’s some point in each of them where I’m giggling madly, it turns into hiccups, and I’m gone.
Share with me, Dopers. I’ll be taking notes for my next library trip.
