We mostly read the "classics", but we are always asking ourselves what qualifies as classic. We are a group of literature fans who are dedicated to looking at great books in new ways. We believe that classic literature can be interpreted throughout time in diverse and relevant ways.

This is the place to read books you always meant to read, or re-read ones you never understood in high school! Some authors we have read so far include: Fitzgerald, Woolf, Conrad, Shelley, McCarthy, Achebe, Wells...
