The library Book Group met Tuesday evening (4/26/11) and had a vigorous discussion of To Kill a Mockingbird. At the end of the meeting the group picked The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman (NY Random House, 2010) for the next meeting Tuesday June 7th at 6pm at the library.
Here is an excerpt from the NY Times review by Christopher Buckley (April 30, 2010):
“This first novel by Tom Rachman, a London-born journalist who has lived and worked all over the world, is so good I had to read it twice simply to figure out how he pulled it off. I still haven’t answered that question, nor do I know how someone so young — Rachman turns out to be 35, though he looks even younger in his author photo — could have acquired such a precocious grasp of human foibles. The novel is alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching, and it’s assembled like a Rubik’s Cube.” Link to the full review.
Contact the library staff pronto if you want to read this book and attend the next meeting June 7th.
