What we're about

We will take the time required to make our way through either a) a series of novels, or b) extremely long single-volume works. Not for the casual reader or the faint of heart. All books will belong to the genre of literary fiction. No dramatic works, no genre fiction, no science fiction or fantasy, no alternate history, no children's books or young-adult fiction.

Candidate works include:

John Barth, LETTERS
Samuel Beckett, The Trilogy
Roberto Bolano, 2666
Evan S. Connell, Mr Bridge and Mrs Bridge
Robertson Davies, The Salterton Trilogy
Don DeLillo, Underworld
Theodore Dreiser, An American Tragedy
