Why did you join this book group and what do you hope to get out of it?

I'd like to renew my enjoyment of fiction. I'd also like to spend some time with readers who enjoy, as well as analyze, literature. I've recently come to the realization that haven't spent a lot of time discussing fiction without using a critical or historical framework.

What is your all-time favorite book?

The Ambassadors, by Henry James. I'm also partial to long reads, for example, Anthony Powell's novel cycle A Dance to the Music of Time, and Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy.

How did you hear about Ann Arbor Classics Book Group?

Meetup.

Introduction

I went to grad school in English Lit back in the Pleistocene. I've since fallen away from reading fiction, and I hope participating in this group will inspire me to return to it.
