20 January- En attendant Godot by Samuel Beckett (1949, 127p)

Two men, Vladimir and Estragon, meet near a tree. They converse on various topics and reveal that they are waiting there for a man named Godot. Beckett’s Godot is emblematic of the “Théatre de l’absurde” which influenced many writers during the late XXth century.

Next book club: 24 February 2014 : L’étranger, by Albert Camus (1942, 145p)

Open to everybody – a good intermediate level of French is recommended.
