Continental European Novel Group

The Continental European Novel Group shall begin with classics from several countries dating back to the mid-19th century.  Following several classics we shall migrate into the 20thcentury, and then proceed country by country.  As the group grows and develops, the choices and purposes shall be to focus on major characters, plots, themes and assessment of the relevance for today‚Äôs reading audience.  The book for July discussion will be Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev (Penguin, $14.00). When first published in 1862, this novel of a divided Russia, with peasants set against masters and fathers set against sons, caused great outrage. But its enduring legacy of social insight and conscience mixed with drama has given it universal appeal.
