It's your basic book club on steroids, what they have going down on the Stanford University campus. It's a seasonal series called Another Look, and at Tuesday's 7:30 p.m. installment in Levinthal Hall, the book under discussion is Philip Roth's "The Ghost Writer," a short novel that was the first in his Zuckerman series. The discussion leader is Stanford professor and celebrated author Tobias Wolff, who will have help on hand from Berkeley's literary power couple, Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman.

The Another Look series teams Stanford luminaries from the English department with recognized literary figures from throughout the Bay Area. The event is free, with seats available on a first-come basis. Find more information at http://another look.stanford.edu.
