What novels have you enjoyed reading lately?

I just read all the Patrick Melrose novels of Edward St. Aubyn. There are 5. I couldn't stop! If you haven't read him before, you'll be amazed - something like a combination of Proust and Waugh, if they were describing heroin addiction and family dysfunctions... Very dark, philosophical, and introspective.... which I tend to love. I have enjoyed Nicole Krauss' books as well lately.

Please recommend a novel for our group to discuss. Why do you suggest this book?

Anything by Elena Ferrante, works of Elizabeth Strout.

What interests you about our group, and what do you hope it will become?

I am looking forward to making friends - with both readers and new books. I love to discuss, analyze, and listen, basically.

Introduction

I'm a retired sociology instructor, now with time to explore fiction and to meet other book-lovers.
