Dear book club members: On Saturday, August 10 at 7:00 p.m., we'll meet to discuss "The Good Soldier", a novel by Ford Madox Ford that is considered a classic. According to a review at Amazon.com:

"Stephen King never wrote such a horrifying novel - it's about the savagery and madness that lay behind the thin surface of ordinary, polite society. In it, Ford virtually invented the "unreliable narrator" and raised the question: how do we know what anyone tells us is true? Jim Thompson's psychotic protagonists are unimaginable without this deceptively genteel predecessor. The Modern Library ranked The Good Soldier 30th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century."

We hope you'll be able to join us! Until then, have a great summer!
