Book #86: June, July & August 2010 (Fiction)

This zany tale of the bungling of Armageddon features an angel, a demon, an 11-year-old Antichrist and a doomsaying witch; unmistakably British humor is in abundance. Buy the book

No new posts Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions - by Dan Ariely

Book #85: June, July & Aug. 2010 (Non-Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Would you like to volunteer?

"Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. From drinking coffee to losing weight, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, we consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictable—making us predictably irrational. " Order the book from Amazon.com

No new posts The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: A Novel - by Haruki Murakami

Book #84: June, July & August 2010 (Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Theomanic

Haruki Murakami is a master of subtly disturbing prose. Mundane events throb with menace, while the bizarre is accepted without comment. Meaning always seems to be just out of reach, for the reader as well as for the characters, yet one is drawn inexorably into a mystery that may have no solution. Buy the book

No new posts Don Quixote - Translated by Edith Grossman

Book #82: April & May 2010 (Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Robert Tulip

Edith Grossman bravely attempts a fresh rendition of the adventures of the intrepid knight Don Quixote and his humble squire Sancho Panza. As the respected translator of many of Latin America's finest writers, she is well suited to the task, and her translation is admirably readable and consistent while managing to retain the vigor, sly humor and colloquial playfulness of the Spanish.

Short story by Nikolay Gogol, published in 1835 as "Zapiski sumasshedshego." Diary of a Madman, a first-person narrative presented in the form of a diary, is the tale of Poprishchin, a government clerk who gradually descends into insanity. At the outset, the narrator records his frustrations and humiliations straightforwardly, rationalizing various affronts to his dignity. Over time, however, reason gives way to delusion...
