Julian by Gore Vidal
- Well, we are done with Burckhardt, most of you will be happy to know. The
German original version will arrive with my brother on Thanksgivings. I will
let you know how the translation compares with it.
Next is "Julian" by Gore Vidal, paperback, ISBN 0345329082. If you haven't
bought the book yet, check your local library.
I think this is a book all will enjoy.
It has been suggested to me by one of our members that we should divide the
discussion into 2 chats, as there is so much to talk about.
This would mean:
First chat: Wednesday, November 3, through Chapter XII
Second chat: Wednesday, November 17, through the end
I will post background information and suggested ancillary readings by this
To look ahead: Following this book, there will be more fiction,
Gillian Bradshaw: "Bearkeeper's Daughter", and H. N. Turteltaub: "Justinian".
Then it's on (or back) to the beginning of Rome.
Hoping for a good crowd at the next chat,
