What are you currently reading?
How did you find out about this book?
I recollect when The Rector of Justin was on the best-seller lists. I read it when I was quite young and decided to reread it with a bookclub.
Why are you reading it now?
I like the multitude of narrators who are telling the story of the Rev’d Prescott, Rector of Justin Martyr, famed and prestigious New England Boarding School for boys. Renowned for being a good, even a great man, and an intellectual innovator, Prescott is really the kind of eminece grise who is behind the lives of the kinds of people who populate the novels of Edith Wharton. This novel explores the negotiations of a life driven by service and a sort of snobbery.
Which character do you relate to so far?
Are you happy to continue?
Most certainly–with all three of the books. With The Romanovs, however, I realize that I am about to get to the historical point when I want to close the book and scream scream scream at all of the main actors.
Where do you think the story will go?
Because I cannot recall the end of the story from the first time I read the novel so long ago, I guess that perhaps some more things will be described that will undercut the perfection of the Rev’d Frank Prescott but will also humanize him.
