What novels have you enjoyed reading lately?

Lincoln in the Bardo, Ghachar Ghochar, Underground Railroad, News of the World, Do Not Say We Have Nothing

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

The Echo Maker by Richard Powers. Nat Book Award 2006, Pulitzer finalist. Exploration of what it means to be who one is, if the brain has been injured is the person the same? Are we who others respond to? What makes us who we are? And who left that cryptic note?

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

Was recommended by a writer friend who is a member and was enthusiastic about the discussions. See above--very much want to explore novel/storytelling from a craft standpoint (or should I say dancepoint? ;-). Afterword: Wow. It was all I'd hoped for and more.

Introduction

As a writer, I'm keen to engage in discussions that explore the storycraft of novels.

What obewan is saying about this Meetup Group

Wow, this is exactly what I was hoping for. Thoughtful, reflective, intelligent, bright conversation with many perspectives. Just loved it. Have crossed the desert and found sweet water.
