I LOVED The Hakawati - realistic and fantastic at the same time.
I would love to read Karen Tei Yamashita's I Hotel. I am relatively new to the Bay Area (grew up in Buffalo, moved to Charlottesville, VA and then abroad for 10 years) so I am always drawn to books I feel will inform me about my new home.
The idea of meeting new books and new people is an exciting one! I hope this group will become a place where where we can both learn and laugh, and where we can share ideas and see ours challenged in a spirit of respect and comraderie (sp?)
Hi! I'm Crystal. I'm 43 and an avid reader of almost everything (maybe not so much SciFi but I'm willing to try!) I have never been in a book club but I'd love to find one.
A book club all other book clubs should aspire to!
