En avkoloniserad kanon

När vi ser vilka böcker som räknas till litteraturens klassiker genom historien, blir det ofta böcker av vita europeiska män som lyfts fram. Men hur skulle en litteraturkanon i Västvärlden, som räknar in minoriteter med ursprung i Asien och Afrika kunna se ut?

Den frågan ställdes i tidningen The Guardian i oktober 2017. Läsarna fick bidra med egna förslag och det här är listan som skapades då.

Det finns fler böcker på listan, men just de här böckerna kan du låna hos oss i Botkyrka.
