Our next meeting is on May, 29th and we will be reading “The Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” and “The Most Handsome Drowned Man in the World” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Read more about Marquez and his work here.
April is Emma’s choice month and we will be reading The Liar’s Club by Mary Karr. May’s choices will be available soon–sorry for the delay!
Read about them here.
Missed the discussion/have more to say about A Tale for the Time Being? Discuss it here in the comments. Here’s a question to start off:
Haruki #1 cites a Zen master for the idea that “a single moment is all we need to establish our human will and attain truth” (324). What kind of enlightenment is Ozeki calling for in A Tale for the Time Being? Is it really available to everyone? Would you try to achieve it if you could? Why or why not?
