Walter Mason recently caught up with Tom Keneally and asked him what would be the one book that everyone should read.
Tom’s reply? George Eliot’s Middlemarch.
Of course, the SMSA library has copies in hardcopy, eBook and audiobook formats.
Middlemarch can be borrowed from the SMSA library in the formats above.
’Middlemarch’ – it’s the greatest novel ever written and it’s so readable. Virginia Woolf said it was the only great English-language novel written for grownups. It’s a very sophisticated, modern novel – it’s about unhappy marriages. She doesn’t pretend that marriage is the culmination of the plot.
