Patricia Bochi begins our fall season of slow reads with The Wine of Solitude by Irène Némirovsky.

Rediscovered Treasures

Gerard Woodward's August, published in 2001 in the UK, is our August Slow Reads recommendation.

Rediscovered Treasures

Harland's Half Acre by David Malouf, published in 1984, is our July Slow Reads recommendation.

Rediscovered Treasures

Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner, published in 1987, is our June recommendation, because the novel explores the quintessential theme of friendship.

Today we launch The Independent’s “Slow Reads.” Every month, we will recommend a book – not a new one – that is worth reading s-l-o-w-l-y, not on the Metro or in snatches. A book for which you will shut down the email and muzzle the tweets, avert your eyes from Facebook, and stop text messaging. We’ll provide a Slow Reads Forum for our readers to share their reactions to the book, and to nominate books for the months to come.
