The English Book Club March 2023: The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
The English Book Club opens the new year with the only remaining Brontë sister yet to be read in the group, Anne Brontë and her novel Agnes Grey (1847). Kazuo Ishiguro, on the other hand, is a repeat author on our lists, making a comeback in February with An Artist of the Floating World (1986). March is dedicated to Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake (2003), whilst April is for Cormac McCarthy’s bleak vision in The Road (2006). The season ends in May with our first novel by a Native American author, Louise Erdrich’s The Round House (2012). Welcome to another season of thoughtful but relaxed book discussions!
