close reading rules

  • About the author EB

Today was the start of the Golden Notebook Project. Starting today, seven women writers, including Laura Kipnis (author of Against Love) are reading Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook and discussing it online. But not in a “yeah, I liked that part, it was nice” kind of way. More like the kind of discussions you, if you’re anything like me, really miss from your college English classes. Though the seven writers have committed to blogging and forum-posting for the next five or six weeks, anyone with a valid email address can read along and join in the dialogue.

Since this just started today, it’s not too late to get out and grab your own copy of The Golden Notebook (perhaps in our lovely deluxe modern classics edition, which just went on sale two weeks ago?).
