Right now we’re reading The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde (we just started if you’d like to join us!). I read this play in college and loved it (I need to find the paper I wrote on it. It was hysterical in the way most papers written by nineteen-year-olds are. I used peanut butter and jelly as an extended metaphor). It is also one of my Classic Club selections! I have H. Montgomery Hyde’s Wilde biography (which I got second-hand, and folded into it I found the most delightfully yellowed review of the biography ripped from the New York Times with “December 21,1975” handwritten on top) on my night table (which is actually a plant stand) to begin as soon as I’m finished Charlotte Brontë: A Writers Life by Rebecca Fraser (which makes me quake each time I pick it us because I’m near the end and know what happens. OH CHARLOTTE!).
…but I digress. You’ll find I do that. In short (shout out to Mr. Micawber!), I highly recommend both the Unputdownables blog and read-a-longs.
P.S. We’re starting Wuthering Heights in September!
