What book are you reading right now?
“My wife and I are slowly making our way through ‘Middlemarch’ by George Eliot. Eliot has a gift for creating believable characters and for describing their everyday interactions in a way that makes you think you’ve met someone very like them before. Her wry sense of humor results in numerous quotable zingers, but also in quieter reflections that are equally winsome. The novel addresses issues including the conditions of the working class, the place of women in society, and assorted religious themes, but mostly it describes humans acting like humans.”
