28) Waiting - Ha Jin

In Waiting, Ha Jin portrays the life of Lin Kong, a dedicated doctor torn by his love for two women: one who belongs to the New China of the Cultural Revolution, the other to the ancient traditions of his family's village. Ha Jin profoundly understands the conflict between the individual and society, between the timeless universality of the human heart and constantly shifting politics of the moment. With wisdom, restraint, and empathy for all his characters, he vividly reveals the complexities and subtleties of a world and a people we desperately need to know.

    Hey, I'd love to go to this but I only found out a couple days ago and haven't had time to read the book! What's the typical protocol? I don't mind waiting for the next month so I can come prepared :)

    Hi all, I'm sorry to say that I won't be able to attend this meeting. I was really looking forward to it, but last minute Labor Day plans have me out of town for the next few days. Hopefully I'll be able to meet all of you at the next event!

    Hi everyone, I was really hoping to make it to this one as I've been excited to meet this group. Unfortunately, I just got the notification a few days ago and don't think I'll have the book finished in time. Next time, let's hope!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
