Kokoro, by Natsume Soseki
"No collection of Japanese literature is complete without Natsume Soseki's Kokoro, his most famous novel and the last he completed before his death. Kokoro—meaning "heart"—is the story of a subtle and poignant friendship between two unnamed characters, a young man and an enigmatic elder whom he calls "Sensei." Haunted by tragic secrets that have cast a long shadow over his life, Sensei slowly opens up to his young disciple, confessing indiscretions from his own student days that have left him reeling with guilt, and revealing, in the seemingly unbridgeable chasm between his moral anguish and his student's struggle to understand it, the profound cultural shift from one generation to the next that characterized Japan in the early twentieth century." - From the Penguin Classics edition

What we're about

The Ann Arbor Classics Book Group meets monthly on Sundays at 3pm at Nicola's Books in the Westgate Shopping Center on Ann Arbor's West Side to discuss selections from Boxall's "1001 books you must read before you die."

Group members vote online for monthly selections. There are dues of $1.00 for each meetup attended (to help cover the monthly meetup.com fee).

Occasionally, we will have an after-discussion dinner.

This group is largely driven by its members, so make sure to voice your opinions on the group message board. Don't forget, the full list of 1001 books can be found under our group files in excel format. Download it and see how many you have read! A list of past selections and a guide to which books are available in audio-format and how to obtain them can also be found under group files.

Please note: Meetup does not provide organizers with unlimited control. Therefore, we do not have access to change your email address, your email settings (go to My Profile), or even to change your RSVPs. Each person must update these items for themselves. Thanks for understanding.
