Three, in order of how badly they are envied:
1. the Bell Jar
2. As I Lay Dying
3. the Odyssey
Thanks to a prolonged and intense encounter with the Canadian half-hour fantasy-adventure that ran between 1992-95 of the same name, whenever people were like, "you mean the epic poem by Homer?" I was like, "what are you talking about." For years and years. Clear until college.
Ashleigh Aston Moore! Devon Sawa! It's less obscure than I thought it was, but even more batshit than I remember:
In the coma, Jay finds himself in a fantasy world where no one reaches the age of 16. Not having heard of adults, the children here have shaped society in their own ways, forming mostly tribal clans in the form of Clubs, such as the Pool Club and the Library Club. The biggest and most powerful Club, however, is The Tower, a brutal despotic police state run by the oldest kids, with Brad as the absolute ruler because he is 15, and "knows everything".Also: "A turning point is reached when Jay's father appears to him as he is regaining consciousness, which Jay is forced to keep as a secret from his mother. As Jay struggles to reorient himself in the waking world and the many changes that have occurred, he finds that he is still dealing with issues through the world from his subconscious." Freud would be proud.
