While I definitely plan on reading some Saki, specifically Beasts, Super-Beasts
, and will read it this month if it happens to be selected, I am concerned about how well Saki short stories in general will work for a discussion. I recently persuaded the two book clubs at my local library to read a collection of nine short stories and for both discussions did not go well. Granted the people who participate in the MobileRead Literary Book Club are more literary and varied in their reading habits then my locals, but I wonder how it will go even here when people may not even have all read the same stories.
Twenty-Six And One And Other Stories
I have already read (and more than once) so I would prefer something that I have never read.
That leaves me with two alternatives, and of those two The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie
is the book I think that I would enjoy more.
Whatever wins though I will read and offer my input to the discussion.
