First it was Infinite Jest and now readers will be tackling the world’s oldest novel this summer, Tale Of Genji.
I want someone to have a summer of The Recognitions next. Or Don Quixote or Crime And Punishment.
Or maybe a reading group can convince me to keep reading Women And Men by Joseph McElroy. I’ve hit the 500 page mark and thrown in the towel. It’s not every book you can abandon after reading 500 pages of it! It’s a special kind of wonderfully ludicrous train wreck!
