Books that have made me cry on public transport: a list

I was thinking about this this morning after having a weep while reading on the train. I thought that I didn’t cry at books that often, and I also thought I didn’t cry in public a lot. Evidently, neither of those things is true, as this list is a lot longer than I thought it would be, but by no means exhaustive.

The Collected Works of TS Spivet – Reif Larson

Sunday At The Pool in Kigali – Gil Courtemanche

A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini

Interpreter of Maladies – Jhumpa Lahiri

I, Phoolan Devi – Phoolan Devi

Burnt Shadows – Kamila Shamsie

Brixton Beach – Roma Tearne

The Beauty Myth – Naomi Wolf (this one was anger)

Bonfire of the Vanities – Tom Wolfe(this one was boredom)
