The TJ Review is back!

Boaz Roth
The TJ Review is back for 2021-22! This year we'll meet one a month to discuss Charles Dickens's novel Bleak House. 

Although any edition will do, I'll be using the Penguin. In a day or two, I'll post the schedule for the entire year, but if you're eager to start digging through the novel, here's some information to get you going.

Our first meeting will be on Thursday, September 23, and we'll discuss chapters one through seven (In my edition, that comes out to roughly 115 pages). Even if you can't make every single meeting but still want to read the work, don't be bashful! The reading comes out to about three pages a day, something you can probably complete in fifteen minutes. I'll also provide some study questions ahead of time to give you a sense of direction before you get going.
