I wrote the following entry before we read the sparrow, but I still like it so I'm going with it.
As our book club name and roster implies, we've lately been reading a lot of books by, about, and for the dudes.
Time for some variety, I say. Time, in fact, to read a book written by, and starring, a woman. Here are my nominees:
Housekeeping by Marylinne Robinson
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Rebecca by Daphne Dumaurier
Sula by Toni Morrison
A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
