Cara, why would you even. ”What’s a book that had a strong impact on you.” I mean, honestly. ALL THE BOOKS.
Okay, seriously. Well, in a lot of ways, The Hours is responsible for me going to grad school. I read it because I fancied Nicole Kidman, but it absolutely blew me away. In the first semester of my third year of undergrad, I took an English class themed around AIDS narratives because The Hours was on the reading list. That class was the first time I really understood that it was possible to study literature about modern culture in the same way that one could study Shakespeare. I pretty much immediately abandoned my plans to do a bilingual law degree and instead spent my fourth year taking more English courses so I could go to grad school. Thanks, The Hours (and my cruch on Nicole Kidman!). *g*
