LBC Read This! Spring 2006

The latest round of selections and discussions from the Litblog Co-op starts today at the LBC blog. This season’s Read This! pick is Television by Jean-Philippe Toussaint, translated by Jordan Stump (Dalkey Archive, 2004). I enjoyed this book immensely and Dalkey provided us with an excerpt to post, so you can get a sense of the writing. Over the next 4 days, we’ll unveil the other 4 nominees and then we’ll devote the next several weeks to talking about all of these books.

P.S. I should mention that the next round, Summer 2006, will work a bit differently. We’ll only be discussing 4 titles, but we’re announcing ahead of time what they are so everyone has a chance to join in the discussion.
