You have chosen one of my favourite writers and I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I have. I look forward to the discussion.

And here I made sure to find the edition of the book that you had shown in your initial post! It just spoke volumes to me!! I am still "upset" that I did not find the same edition that you had used to illustrate "The Bridge of San Luis Rey". But then again I didn't like the book (the edition of which I found for a quarter at the used bookstore!) so the cover didn't matter at all!


I was surprised when I discovered the book had that new cover, Julie - I like them both, but neither one seems entirely fitting to the story!

Oooh I read this one last year and thought it was very good, theres also lots to talk about for such a small book, so I will be there on the 22nd.


You're right, Simon - there's so much in such a short book.

Just came back to check the date... and noticed that I had got exactly that edition from the library, which I much preferred to the various covers available on Amazon. Looking forward to Saturday!
