What novels have you enjoyed reading lately?

I recently have enjoyed Irving's "In One Person" and David James Duncan's "The Brothers K." I also found Wallace Stegner's "Angle of Repose" to be wonderfully written (Pulitzer Prize winner). For one of a different type, I liked "A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers."

Please recommend a novel for our group to discuss. Why do you suggest this book?

One possibility is "The Lacuna" by Barbara Kingsolver. It ihas a fine main character and also includes some rich historical references.

What interests you about our group, and what do you hope it will become?

Novel reading!! I just hope to enjoy good reading and some interesting people. I'm only here part of the year so will be absent in big gaps at times. Thanks!


Hi! I'm Patti Callahan and my husband and I have settled back in our Santa Rosa home where we were married in the back yard in 1989. I relish novels (especially good ones!) and am happy to be part of this group. I'm a retired psych/hospice RN.
