Classics in Brief

Classics in Brief

These are the books you SHOULD have read… but didn’t. Or maybe you read them, but it was 20 years ago… and everything you learned 20 years ago took a backseat to figuring out your Friday night plans.

We get it. That’s why we’re introducing our newest book club, Classics in Brief. With the help of our super-well-read-and-educated staff (a.k.a. Co-Manager Wayne), we’re going to choose some of the great Classics of literature… all kept short.  Just because you might not have time to read War and Peace doesn’t mean you can’t read ANY Tolstoy! Stay tuned as we work our way through a range of old and new classics that won’t monopolize your reading list!

Pnin is a professor of Russian at an American college who takes the wrong train to deliver a lecture in a language he cannot master. Pnin is a tireless lover who writes to his treacherous Liza: "A genius needs to keep so much in store, and thus cannot offer you the whole of himself as I do." Pnin is the focal point of subtle academic conspiracies he cannot begin to comprehend, yet he stages a faculty party to end all faculty parties forever.
