The fifth season of The English Book Club presents an intriguing mixture of heterogeneous voices. We kick off in August 2018 with Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein (1818), the first explicitly Gothic tale to be read in our book club. In September, William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury (1929) will perhaps puzzle yet hopefully entertain us too, followed by a highly controversial book, Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita (1955). For November, we have Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things (1997), which won the Man Booker Prize, and we end the year with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s popular and acclaimed novel Americanah (2013). Interesting times ahead! Please join us to discuss some of the best literature out there.
