Short stories of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, A Wizard of Earthsea (Ursula K. LeGuin), The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho)
Anything by J.M. Coetzee, my favorite author, who blends mythic storytelling with contemporary political and ethical issues. I'd especially like to discuss Waiting for the Barbarians or The Life and Times of Michael K.
I can't wait to discuss the current book you're reading. I love the idea of having Death as a narrative; I particularly enjoy literary fantasy and magical realism, the borders of the surreal and the possible. I'd love for us to engage each other on how life and literature feed one another.
I'm an educator and a writer, a game player, a thinker and a nature lover. I write essays, short stories, and have the usual drawerful of unpublished novels. I love discussing literature, and I'm really excited about this group!
What fun! So glad I've returned!
