Re: What book(s) are you reading right now?
I don't know if any of you know this work, but I want to strongly recommend The Reader by Bernhard Schlink, translated from the German by Carol Brown Janeway. It is a beautiful and morally disturbing novel...a quick-read (one or two can't-put-it-down sessions), which won't quickly be forgotten.
I don't want to give away the story, but it begins in Germany in the years after WWII.
Now reading Steinbeck's Travels With Charley, which I picked up at the Burlington Antique Show a few weeks ago.
