• What are you reading?

Signal to Noise, by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, for SF book group

• What did you recently finish reading?

The Gentleman, by Forrest Leo. Funny and charming, but I think the blurb that mentions Wodehouse and Wilde does this book a disservice by making you think about how much funnier and more charming it would like to be. I think the dialogue worked better when it was rattled off on stage; on the page, it is a bit tedious to have characters explaining to each other what the narrative voice has already made clear to the reader. Still, it has an excellent bookstore, a Victorian club for inventors, a gentlemanly Satan, and a lost wife who has all the manly virtues her silly husband lacks.

• What do you think you’ll read next?

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, by Amy Schumer, for Tawanda book group.
