The #6degrees meme is hosted at Books are my Favourite and Best.
This month the chain begins with (#1) Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin. This book has been on my to-read list for quite a while but I haven't gotten to it yet. A book about the romantic trials of one city-dwelling gay man that I did read, and enjoyed, is (#2) Less by Andrew Sean Greer. He also wrote(#3) The Story of a Marriage, published in 2008, which I was absolutely blown away by. Another book that I was blown away by, and which is also about a marriage (among other things) is (#4) Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. After Gilead Robinson published (#5) Home which is essentially a retelling of the events in Gilead from a different point of view. Another great book that retells a story from a second character's point of view is (#6) Wicked by Gregory McGuire.
