Comments for the next book?

Well, we're quickly coming to the end of The Great Gatsby, so it's a good time to talk about the next book. What would you like to read and discuss with a group?

Browsing at a bookstore the other evening, I thought I would enjoy discovering an author I've never read before. Two I saw that I have an interest in are Balzac (Old Goriot, or Eugenie Grandet looked like good introductions) or Evelyn Waugh (Scoop appeared to be a fun read).

But the one that really caught my attention was The Damnation of Theron Ware, by Harold Frederic. It seems this book is finally being rediscovered and added to top U.S. novels, and I'd love to dig into it.

So post on things you'd like to read or a direction you'd like to go next!
