October's candidates

While everyone is still enjoying Spook so much, it is time to choose the next book. We have three worthy contenders: The Flying Troutmans by Miriam Toews, A Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion and Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. It's quite a mix: a tragicomic road trip, a heartwrenching biography and a burn ward love story. Of course, these descriptions are oversimplified. Each promises to be an interesting read. I'll open the voting for an indefinite amount of time - until we are ready to read, I guess. I also invite all non-clubbers vote - which book do you think we should read? To the polls!

If only we could find a heartwrenching road trip love story... Or is that what On The Road is all about?

On The Road is more about one author's obsession with himself... does that count as a love story?

Ewww, I don't want to read a book about self love.
