An online reading group for 'Under the Volcano'
Eric Wagner and Gregory Arnott have formed a reading group on Facebook to read Malcolm Lowry's classic novel, Under the Volcano.
Everyone is invited to join the new Facebook group for the reading group and participate.
Modern Library's list of "100 Best Novels" places Under the Volcano at No. 11, and it's amusing to take a moment to glance through the list; Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov, a book I really like and which was the subject of a reading group on this blog, comes in at #53. On the Road by Jack Kerouac, a book I dislike, is No. 55. One of my favorite writers, Sinclair Lewis, comes in at No. 68 with Main Street.
The Kindle version of Lowry's book is only $1.
