  • I am excited to introduce December's book! It was suggested by our very own Bob, who has been to pretty much every meeting. I've come to learn that Bob is intellectual and witty and is not afraid to state his opinions and teach us something new each meetup. So without further ado, here is December's book...(Thanks Bob this sounds great!)

    If On a Winter's Night a Traveller
    By Italo Cavino

    Italo Calvino's masterpiece combines a love story and a detective story into an exhilarating allegory of reading, in which the reader of the book becomes the book's central character. 
    Based on a witty analogy between the reader's desire to finish the story and the lover's desire to consummate his or her passion, If On A Winter's Night A Traveller is the tale of two bemused readers whose attempts to reach the end of the same book, If On A Winter's Night A Traveller by Italo Calvino, of course, are constantly and comically frustrated. In between chasing missing chapters of the book, the hapless readers tangle with an international conspiracy, a rogue translator, an elusive novelist, a disintegrating publishing house, and several oppressive governments. The result is a literary labyrinth of storylines that interrupt one another - an Arabian Nights of the postmodern age.
