    Here's an interesting article by Will Self. Not related to this book, except that we are a group still taking the time to read the literary novel.

      Thanks for this, Betsy. Well worth reading, although I disagree entirely. Then again, maybe I'm the deluded one.

      Will Self is a notoriously pompous ass. But and enjoyable and thought-provoking one!

    What a nice way to spend a Sunday evening, eh? With a group that is focused and thoughtful and open to ideas. Many thanks to Sana and Robyn.

    I've been reading the book and really enjoying it, but unfortunately I will be in Quebec the weekend of the next meeting.

    On May 1, Sebastian Barry, author of our June selection, will be appearing to launch and sign his new book at Barnes & Noble on 82nd and B'way, at 7pm. If I post this in the June meeting space, it will be over when we get there, so I am posting it here.
