What are some of your favorite authors and book titles?

Read enough not to play favorites, but can mention classics like DeLillo, H. Hesse, A. Clarke or A. Huxley, and most Russians from Checkhov to Tolstoi. From recent years I'll say R. Powers, H. Kunzru and I. McEwan.

What are your suggestions for future discussions?

Include some international bestsellers and current European literature (like LeClezio or Houellebecq, in good translations.)

What evenings work best for you to meet?

It varies, but Fridays are the worst for me.


Delighted to join the book club after 4 years of traveling (far-away lands like China... and New York). I'm a science educator, writer and avid reader. Always keeping a good book club at hand.
