About this course:

Here’s the challenge: they have to be fabulous, they have to be contemporary, they have to be relevant, and they have to be short (enough). They also have to stimulate strong reactions, hearty disagreements, and whatever else makes a discussion group vibrant and memorable. We begin with Tommy Orange’s There, There; move on to Cormac McCarthy’s All the Pretty Horses; and finish with Phillip Roth’s American Pastoral.
