May Read-Along

If I remember correctly, this is my first read-along, but hopefully not my last. Although May is such a busy month, with final test papers to grade (around 150) and other tests to give, I decided to join Bellezza, Richard and Frances in reading Alberto Moravia's "Contempt" because I simply cannot stay away from such a writer, plus it was also time to read some other books by writers I enjoyed back in college. In a nutshell, if you want and have the time, immerse into some serious reading between 23rd - 25th May. Will it help to say that the book was turned into a movie by Godard, the famous French director, starring Brigitte Bardot?

Thanks for sharing the info! I'm excited to have you reading with us. This is going to be fun.

I know! May is almost as busy as September for us teachers! Not the best time for a read-along, but how happy I am that we've thrown in our hats with Frances and Richard and the others. I know nothing about Moravia, so I trust you'll show me a thing or two as I read through him for the first time. xox

I remember Moravia as being quite visceral, and I always tend to admire such writers (see Henry Miller, for example). Looking forward to this!
