What is the last book you read?

20,000 lieues sous les mers by Jules Verne

Name your 3 favorite books and one that was just a big disappointment

Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon, L'Histoire de l'oeil by Georges Bataille and 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. A big disappointment: Beloved by Toni Morrison.

Have you ever re-read a book because it was just so good?

Many. Especially with more complex oeuvres it's really important to revisit masterpieces to be able to grasp something you couldn't possibly have before. Although I do keep rereading Jean Genet and Georges Bataille just because they're so darn hot.

Who is your favorite childhood author?

Douglas Adams

Introduction

Hi there, I'm a French Lit Master's candidate looking to get my modern literature fix. I love the idea of book clubs, but hate the typical Lady Chatterly's Lover-type fare. Pynchon and Faulkner are my personal gods.
