    I recommend Henry Fielding, if you are an advanced reader. Extremely funny and well-written, though around 300 years old.

    When we talk about literary masterpieces, we usually mean old books by dead people. You could call A Doll's House a Swedish masterpiece.

    So are you looking for old classics, or are you looking for books we think are wonderful? Since you liked A Doll's House, you might try Alice Walker, Barbara Kingsolver, or Toni Morrison. They're living authors who write about women who escape their doll houses.

    And yes, I love Steinbeck, too. My favorite is In Dubious Battle. It's about union organizing.
