Book Group: Catching Up With the Classics
June’s book is Pudd’nhead by Wilson Twain: “On its surface, Pudd’nhead Wilson possesses all the elements of an engrossing nineteenth-century mystery: reversed identities, a horrible crime, an eccentric detective, a suspenseful courtroom drama, and a surprising, unusual solution. Yet it is not a mystery novel. Seething with the undercurrents of antebellum southern culture, the book is a savage indictment in which the real criminal is society, and racial prejudice and slavery are the crimes.”
In July we’ll read Green Mansions by W. H. Hudson.
