Suggestions for next reading

Please email me or post on the blog your suggestions for the next reading. Please make your suggestions by Jan 15, 2006.

I recommend Salman Rushdie's Shalimar the Clown - that's just off the top of my head. I think I will go through my Amazon wish list to suggest more books.

This book sounds very interesting: Teacher Man : A Memoir - especially since we have a few teachers among us.

A review of this book reads like this: "A dazzling writer with a unique and compelling voice, McCourt describes the dignity and difficulties of a largely thankless profession with incisive, self-deprecating wit and uncommon perception. It may have taken him three decades to figure out how to be an effective teacher, but he ultimately saved his most valuable lesson for himself: how to be his own man."

Night, by Elie Wiesel,Stella Rodway,Francois Mauriac seems like a very compelling read as well. This apparently is a moving record of the holocaust - Wiesel's own experiences in Birkenau, Auschwitz, and Buchenwald.

Man, there really hasn't been any activity here in a while. Hope our reading group hasn't faltered. Well even if it's just me and George, I want to read another book. Here is my suggestion.

Maus, by Art Spiegelman. This is a very unusual book, difficult to explain. Spiegelman is a comic book writer whose parents were Holocaust survivors. He was inspired to create a novel length comic book that tells the story of his parents experiences and the troubled relationship he has with them. The book was enormously successful and started a whole new genre of books called the graphic novel.

This book should only takes a few hours to read. I think a short, inexpensive book and a gripping story might be the best thing to get the group going again.
