The Wolves are a little behind on our February pick, Our Horses in Egypt by Rosalind Belben, but promise to all weigh in this weekend. Apologies to those who read along only to find the hosts late to the party.
I am very excited about our March pick, Conversation in the Cathedral by Mario Vargas Llosa, a book that I have meant to read for some time and now will thanks to Richard. I suspect that the author's work is on many reading radars since the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Literature last fall. So I hope you will consider joining us for this story of 1950s Peru during the dictatorship of Manuel A. Odria structured around a conversation between Santiago and Ambrosia as they explore what has happened in their town and the subsequent personal and political loss of freedoms. It is a chunkster at 601 pages but I have it on good word that is subtly and wonderfully suspenseful and a lush linguistic cradle once you settle in.
Join us? The weekend of March 25.
