famished for fiction book club- february

february book club reads

with only 28 days, february is the shortest month of the year,  adventureclubinteractive has decided to honor of february’s diminutive nature by reading short stories.  theStephALA has selected “The Complete Prose of Woody Allen,” while adventureclubviral has selected “The Middleman and Other Stories” by Bharati Mukherjee.

“i was in high school the first time i read through ‘The Complete Prose of Woody Allen’.  at that time i was in the a habit of writing non-sensical poetry and short plays.  the boyfriend of a friend of mine leant me his copy of this book and it spoke to me instantly.  i found it weird, intellectual and hilarious.  now, re-reading it a little more than 10 years later i still enjoy this collection of ideas, essays and short stories and i can appreciate more allusions than i did way back in high school.  this time around i’m also noticing more common themes like numerous references to hat-blocking and kirkegaard.”  -theStephALA
