Now that the modernist boot camp that was Woolf in Winter is over, I'm happy to bring you news of ten more shared reads I'll be participating in through the end of the year to be co-hosted with my blogging buddies Claire of kiss a cloud, Emily of Evening All Afternoon, Frances of Nonsuch Book, and Sarah of what we have here is a failure to communicate. I hope that each and all of you who read this will consider joining us for discussion of at least one of the following books, so here's a list of the titles (and the names of the people who proposed them, for those interested in that sort of book psychology thing!) for you to look over to help you decide.
March: Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana (Frances)
April: Georges Perec's Life a User's Manual (me!)
May: Margo Lanagan's Tender Morsels (Sarah)
June: Gabriel Josipovici's Moo Pak (Emily)
July: Kenzaburo Oe's A Personal Matter (Claire)
August: William Carlos Williams' In the American Grain (Frances)
September: Tómas Eloy Martínez's Santa Evita (me!)
October: Tobias Wolff's Old School (Sarah)
November: Ricardas Gavelis' Vilnius Poker (Emily)
December: Gabriel García Márquez's Clandestine in Chile (Claire)
Since this'll mostly be a laid-back affair befitting a book group that doesn't even have a name, feel free to leave a comment here or at any of the other host blogs if you think you'd like to join us for a particular read or if you have any questions. Since all our "conversations" will take place on the last Friday of each month, you could also just read the work and then tell us about it if you want to join in the fun but not the commitment. Although I'm stoked to continue reading on with such a great group of bloggers, it'd be cool if you could join us too. Please think about it!
