In the meantime, Happy New Year!!
: Guillermo, one of the many things that I value
: about you is that you bring to my attention
: books and authors that I never would have
: found otherwise. By all means, I'm in favor
: of adding The Garden of Evening Mists to
: our list. I've never read anything by a
: Malaysian either. :^)
: --Previous Message--
: Both "The Custom of the Country"
: Wharton and "The Buried Giant" are
: fine with me, so let's make them our two
: firm decisions so far, plus Sterling and I
: will read "Twenty Years After" and
: follow up on the Barsetshire Chronicle
: As I've mentioned before, I'm reading books
: by authors born in countries from which I
: haven't read anything. So I would like to
: propose "The Garden of Evening
: Mists", by Malaysian author Tan Twan
: Eng. This book won the Man Asian Literary
: Prize and it sounds good. So let me know.
: Six books a year means we can propose two
: each of us. That would be my first and each
: of you has proposed one, so if my suggestion
: goes through, we have three. Let me think of
: the other one.
