October Book Club—“The Rebels” by Sándor Márai

By The Editors

This October, we're delighted to host a new installment in the WWB-Reading the World Book Clubs with a feature on Hungarian author Sándor Márai's The Rebels. Discussion will be headed by Mark Sarvas from The Elegant Variation, with contributions from David Leavitt and others. The Rebels tells the story of a group of teenagers in an abandoned village in World War I Hungary who find an unusual expression for their feelings of disillusionment and alienation.

We encourage you to pick up a copy of the book, follow the discussion and pitch in with your own insights.

And you can look forward to seeing the following bloggers host WWB's Book Club forum in the months to come:

NOVEMBER: Michael Orthofer, Ryunosuke Akutagawa's Mandarins (tr. by Charles de Wolf) DECEMBER: Laila Lalami, Carmara Laye's The Radiance of the King (tr. James Kirkup) JANUARY: James Marcus, title TK

More information on WWB's Book Clubs is available on our Book Clubs web page, along with additional links on the authors and publishers involved in the Reading the World series.
