New Selection for Penguin Classics Reading Group

The Penguin Classics Reading Group over at Amazon.com has chosen its next reading selection: Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner, winner of the 1972 Pulitzer Prize. Here is the description of the book from the Reading Group website: "Angle of Repose is a novel about Time, as much as anything--about people who live through time, who believe in both a past and a future. . . . It reveals how even the most rebellious crusades of our time follow paths that our great-grandfathers' feet beat dusty." These discussions, led by Kathy Gursky, are generally pretty good, so if you've read the book or would like to read it, join the discussion the week of June 15th.

Thanks for the tip - I didn't even know Penguin Classics had a reading group.

I am planning on reading this. I am not sure if I will get to it in the same time frame that the group does, but I am going to try to join the discussion at some point.
