Great Reading Continues

Charles Edward Perugini, Girl reading, 1879

Early this year I launched my Year of Great Reading course, and many of you have been receiving a Literary Readers Guide each month as part of your annual subscription. Many thanks for all the wonderful comments showing how much you have been enjoying it.

There are still two more monographs to go this year and this month’s is the intriguing The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark. Time magazine ranked this book as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present. It is funny and tragic, sharp and unexpected, and it is set in one of the greatest cities in the world. Discover why it is such a brilliant work of fiction and learn about its characters and themes from my November monograph which can be ordered for $3 from my website.

I’ve planned an exciting new course of Literary Readers Guides for 2019, starting on 1 January. It includes a brilliant short story, a foreign-language novel, some comedy and some tragedy, and what is (in my view) the world’s greatest novel.

Please view this short 6-minute video which will introduce you to the books I have chosen, and why I think each one is special.
