Ah, I don't know if what I'm reading is appropriate for discussion,
except that it's the very first novel for adolescents, Les Aventures de
Telemaque, fils d'Ulysse (first published in 1699). Known in English as
The Adventures of Telemachus, the son of Ulysses. I'd be curious if
anyone on the list knows this book and how they come to know it since
it's mostly forgotten today except as a French "classic" novel. But in
its day it was a major bestseller in all the European languages and
remained part of every well-educated boy's library for two centuries.
