Please list three favorite works of literature:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Arcadia

Do you have a favorite literary time or movement? If so, what?

all, really, but I'm particularly fond of a lot of post-modern works, Victorian literature, and literature pre-1600.

Do you have a favorite or go-to style of literary criticism? If so, what?

Marxist, as I tend to view a lot of things as class struggle. It's also pretty flexible.

Please list three favorite authors:

David Foster Wallace, Mark Twain, Shakespeare

What was the last book that you thoroughly enjoyed?

Maybe The Pale King, since it's new and I haven't read it yet. I've also been wanting to read some Cormac McCarthy. Also, The Age of Innocence.

What Mallory K. is saying about this Meetup Group

I had a great time at the first gathering! A small group of well-read and interesting people. We decided on: 1. the first book (Super Sad True Love Story) 2. general formatting (There will be two meetings a month, every other Tuesday at 7pm, and most books will get two meetings-worth of discussion.) 3. discussion leadership (Each book will have a different person leading discussion/providing background material, though everyone is welcome to prepare discussion questions or articles of their own) 4. literary genres (We are open to all sorts of good, challenging literature, but we are starting out with fiction in novel form, and seeing where things go from there) 5. size of the group (We'd like to keep things kinda small with about 8-12 core people. You, dear reader of this review, could be one of those people!) 5. feelings about books (Books are rad.) We still haven't decided on a permanent location, though finding a meeting room in local church was suggested.
