My favorites change from month to month. Have you ever read any Stefan Zweig? His novels and short stories are what I'm reading now. Very good stuff. I find that I am reading women authors more frequently these days. Alice Munro is definitely one of my favorites. I love Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, but it's certainly not my favorite book. I guess my all-time favorite "book" is a play: Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.
How about W.G. Sebald's "The Rings of Saturn"? or Heinrich Boll's "Billiards at Half-Past Nine"? or Stefan Zweig's "Beware of Pity"?
Hi. I'm a retired computer programmer, volunteer at a nursing home, sometime composer of music, love to sing, mediocre chess player who once beat Walter Browne, voracious reader (your books are not safe when I come to visit).
This is a really good group, lot's of avid participants, and well run by Carissa and Jeni. And the method used to chose the book to read could not be improved upon.
