Hey everyone, At my school we've been given a research paper on two books from British Empire literature. The requirements are that the author of the book must have originally written it in English, that he is from Britain or a former British colony (except the United States), and that the book was first written after the English Renaissance. I would like to do a satire, but I'm having trouble finding one. Otherwise, I enjoy mysteries, coming of age stories, inspirational stories, and humorous stories in general. Ideally these would be more modern books (late 19th century-2008), but I'm open to any time period. The English department at my school frowns upon George Orwell (who would be my first choice), JRR Tolkein, CS Lewis, and JK Rowling (since students have plagarized papers about these authors before). Anyway, if anyone has any good book suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!
