Because I seem to need to read multiple books at once....
I'm still reading Matthiesen's In Paradise, but it's pretty heavy stuff, so I can't read much in one sitting.
I just started I Am Asher Lev by Chaim Potok for one of my book clubs. It's the story of a young man who's compelled to create art, but that runs counter to his Hasidic Judaism. So far, I'm enjoying it, although I'm only about a chapter in.
I'm also reading Maugham's The Trembling of a Leaf Little Stories of the South Sea Islands. One of my book clubs read Maugham's The Moon and Sixpence last year and I fell in love with his writing. I downloaded a bunch of free versions of his books onto my Kindle. My other book club is reading Of Human Bondage soon. My goal is to read everything he's written. I can't believe it took me this long to discover him!
