My Favorite Ever-THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE.
Titles are a real chore. Oh, sure, once in a while, one comes to mind immediately, perfectly summing up the story. But more often-- not. For me at least.
What titles have jumped off the shelf at you? What titles perfectly captured the story? What are your favorite book titles in other words? Now I guess it is possible to love the title but not the story, but the two seem like a matched set.
Hemingway seemed to have a knack for it--or perhaps Max Perkins titled them. THE SUN ALSO RISES, A FAREWELL TO ARMS, A MOVABLE FEAST, THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS. But those titles connote an awfully large canvas, don't they.
And Flannery O'Connor-A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND, EVERTHING THAT RISES MUST CONVERGE, WISE BLOOD. Or is it our memory of these books that makes the titles sing.
