What a great idea! I might come along to the next one... interesting to see your reading list too. Thanks for sharing!

I want to read Craig Silvey too! I might wait for his second novel, out in March...

I'll be interested to know what you decide about the de Kretser. Your comments made me rethink my memories. I don't think that I will reread it but in retrospect I did feel its 'manneredness' acutely, which made reading it a rather skewedly intellectual exercise. I didn't experience many emotions apart from a similarly mannered admiration, though that in bucketloads.

re True Grit -the film of it was John Wayne's last.
Rooster Cogburn!

re Confederacy Of Dunces: the real story is the author's mother and her relentless faith in his genius.
