Hi John,

I'm definitely up for a close reading, and I like the idea of starting with
History of Sexuality Part 1 (it's nice and short, apart from any other
consideration). I haven't my copy of the book close to hand, but would
suggest that we divide it up into reading segments of chapters at a time.
