Book Club Of The Air: The Obscure, By Thomas Hardy

It's time for the January meeting of the Talk of the Nation Book Club of the Air. This month's selection is Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy. It's about the thwarted dreams of a pious man. The novel, which offers a harsh critique of Victorian mores, is considered by many to be Hardy's best work. So, grab your book and a cup of coffee and share your observations of Jude the Obscure on Talk of the Nation's Book Club of the Air, from NPR News. Guests: Reverend Charles Gilchrist Director of Operations, New Song Urban Ministries Executive Director, Cathedral Shelter of Chicago (1991-1996) Episcopal Priest (ordained 1990) Listeners call in
