Book choices for July meet

The book I really want to read with you is not about Asia, not even in the slightest. I thought it would make for an interesting discussion. But, because this is a book club about Asia, I thought I should give you the choice:) Option 1 Ryu Murakami - In the Miso Soup. The guardian says: "this reads like the script notes for - American psycho the holiday abroad". I've started reading it and quite enjoy this serial killing little tour through tokyo's seedy night life. But I'm on page 4. http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2005/mar/12/featuresreviews.guardianreview19 Option 2 Carson McCuller - The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. The Time Magazine picked it as one of the best 100 books ever. It's a novel about community, music, the American South and religion. It's an easy readcenters on a deaf mute who becomes central to a diverse couple of people. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lonely-Hunter-Penguin-Modern-Classics/dp/0141185228/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335881326&sr=8-1 This poll will close on 15 May.
