are you as well read as

Suppose you have a 16 year old son.
Suppose next you want to recommend some books for him to read.
Suppose you would select 10 titles.
What would be your list?

Pupils at Eton making their way to class.Mr. Tony Little has made a little list for eager boys of 16 years old. I do not know if this Little man has a son of this age, but he has been a kind of a father to many 16 year old boys. He is the outgoing head of Eton, the prestigious temple of education and class (all of this not to be equated with wisdom) in the United Kingdom.

He has made a list of ten books. Natalie Hayes (I doubt she transgendered her way into Eton) wrote an article about this list (and book) by mr. Little. She recommends a wider look and perspective and she even recommends a book by the title Memoirs of a Porcupine, written by a man who never went to Eton. He was raised in Congo, capitalized by Brazzaville. His name is Alain Mabanckou.
