Here friends are the first five books of The Project:
- Blood Meridian – Cormac McCarthy
- Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
- The Finkler Question – Howard Jacobson
- Catch-22 – Joseph Heller
- The Sense of an Ending – Julian Barnes
Several of you have mentioned a desire to read along with some or many of the books and I’m quite excited to hear from you as I review! The company will be nice.
The plan is to pick 5 books at a time with some diversity of date of publication and style/content in mind. I will then announce them a couple of weeks ahead of time to give any of you who want to join me a chance to get hold of a text. Then, quite simply, one book read a week and one review posted.
But in this first installment I’ll be immediately breaking with that plan as I just finished the fifth book last week. So in this instance I will spread the five reviews over the next two to three weeks. I plan to have a fairly standard model of review but will from time to time engage with ideas and interpretation of particular novels that really grab me in separate posts.
I’ll announce the second group of five books in the next day or two. If you want me to read or review anything in a particular order, let me know :)
Let the games begin!
