What we're about
Anyone who will never read these five novels on their own, but who, for some silly reason, feels compelled to do just that.
1) In Search of Lost Time
2) Gravity's Rainbow
4) Les Mis (unabridged (including the French Revolution appendix))
5) Infinte Jest
Yes, we're going to read these novels! I'd like to start with In Search of Lost Time (the rest will be a bag of madeleines after that).
I'd love to do it in forty weeks and also have us all produce some commentary in a shared google doc. That's just an idea to give us a bit of cohesion. I don't mind if people break out some "literary criticism," but I'd also love to get a discussion going where we react as casual readers as well.
Please let me know if you have any comments or questions. Also, let me know if you've read any of these novels.
I'd love to hear suggestions on Meetup locations. I'm flexible. Also, I don't mind if we rotate locations as well.
I'm hoping this is a fun group with great chemistry. The group will be inclusive of everyone, and I'm looking forward to hearing what people want out of this group.
