books on the docket in the months ahead

Each winter, we read a “big” novel, one that takes several sessions. In 2019, we’re off for Leo Tolstoy’s ANNA KARENINA (1877). I’m requesting that you buy the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation. You can find it by clicking here.

Here’s how we’ll read and discuss this grand novel:

1/11/2019 Parts 1 - 3

1/25/2019 Parts 4 - 5

2/8/2019 Parts 6 - 8

And after that, we’ll go back to a set of novels published in the last few years.

3/8/2019 Daisy Johnson, EVERYTHING UNDER (2018)

3/29/2019 Julian Barnes, THE ONLY STORY (2018)

4/26/2019 George Saunders, LINCOLN IN THE BARDO (2017)

5/17/2019 Helen Klein Ross, WHAT WAS MINE (2016)

6/14/2019 Geoff Ryman, WAS (1992)

There’s no July, 2019, meeting to give us time to read our “big” summer novel:

8/16/2019 Anthony Trollope, PHINEAS FINN (1868)
