Catholic Novelists I Want To Read

The first Catholic Novel I want to read is "Silence" by Shusaku Endo a Japanese Catholic. I've heard amazing things and I really need to pick it up.

The second is Evelyn Waugh, author of "Brideshead Revisited" and other famous books. I want to read his book on St. Edmund Campion.

The third is Flannery O'Conner, my friend Hannah says that I should read the Habit of Being by her.

And fourthly I'd like to read some Graham Greene.

I also wouldn't mind reading some of Chesterton's novels.

  1. #2, #3, and #4 are good. Chesterton's novels (other than Father Brown) are a little strange. Heavy on the random philosophical discussions, such as in the ball and the cross. Never heard of #1.
