In response to Jacob Weisberg’s line about the new Tom Wolfe novel I Am Charlotte Simmons — “You may never put down a Tom Wolfe novel. But you never reread one, either” — Hugh Hewitt wonders which modern novels people read twice. Sadly, I could only think of two post Ulysses novels I’ve read twice, both about baseball (at least at one level) — Bernard Malamud’s The Natural and Phillip Roth’s The Great American Novel. Maybe my colleagues can do better.
By the way, I’m reading Charlotte Simmons, and the first part of Weisberg’s statement certainly applies.
