Here's a weird one: I'm writing about an odd, sort of misogynistic culture, and I need a reading list for a high school/college student there, consisting of books in which there are no female characters. Can any of you think of any real books ("classic" or "literary" works are preferred—something you might conceivably read in school) in which there are no female characters, or if female characters do appear, their roles are minimal and confined to being wives/mothers? So, a war novel with all male characters where one of them occasionally writes home to his mother would be fine, but if the same book contains a scene where one of the guys, say, visits a brothel and sexes a prostitute, it won't work.
I've been wracking my brain and would really appreciate the help with what may be an impossible task. Thanks!
