April 28th Meeting

malmudMore a novel than a book about baseball. 

Movie had a happy ending instead of the ending in the book. 

Author was a Jewish boy from NYC who move to Oregon and then came back East. A Pulitzer Prize winner but not for this book. 

Basically we liked the book and this keyed our interest in looking at some more award winning novels. John C asked about Steinbeck.  Craig has the assignment over the summer to find the Top 100 historical novels so we can pick one out each year

Book had a mystical element to story and characters which many of us did not pick up but many of us have not been accused us of just being pretty faces.
