We will choose what book to read in December when we meet next week (on Tuesday, the 26th). If you can't make the meeting but want a "vote", please send me an email. Here are the choices (drum roll please) - all are nonfiction and the number of pages is shown in ( ):

N. Vincent: Self Made Man (304). What happens when a woman passes as a man.  For 18 months, she disguised herself as a man, renamed herself Ned, joined a men's bowling league, visited strip bars, and dated women.

L. Strachey: Eminent Victorians (366) The four biographical essays created something of a stir when they were first published in the spring of 1918. Florence Nightingale is not a gentle archangel descended from heaven to minister sweetly to wounded soldiers, but rather an exacting, dictatorial, and judgmental crusader.

A. Gawande: Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science (288) Medicine reveals itself as a fascinatingly complex and "fundamentally human endeavor" in this debut essay collection by a surgical resident and staff writer for the New Yorker.

T. Kidder: Mountains Beyond Mountains (352) As a specialist in infectious diseases, Dr. Paul Farmer's goal is nothing less than redressing the "steep gradient of inequality" in medical service to the desperately poor.

Best wishes to all,
