Reading

The group just finished Lorrie Moore’s A Gate at the Stairs.

Despite the 20-year-old protagonist being a bit too precocious, the verdict was a strong thumbs-up. An insightful portrait of the contemporary American scene, with elements of tragedy and sardonic humor.

Next up is David Mitchell’s The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet about a Dutch trader in Japan in 1799. History! Romance! Action! Suspense!

Sounds like fun.
