This book club will read and discuss fiction books under 200 pages that present some great moral dilemmas, plot twists, memorable characters and ideas that just beg for discussion. Though they look deceptively short and simple, they will WOW you with the depth of their meaning and the precision of their language. Even if you are already in a book club, you could squeeze this one in. Meetings will last just one hour, so discussion will be as intense as the reading.
In January we will consider We The Animals by Justin Torres.
In this groundbreaking debut, Justin Torres plunges us into the chaotic heart of one family, the intense bonds of three brothers, and the mythic effects of this fierce love on the people we must become.
"A tremendously gifted writer whose highly personal voice should excite us in much the same way that Raymond Carver’s or Jeffrey Eugenides’s voice did when we first heard it." —Washington Post
