Booze & Book Club Midtown Monthly Meetup

  • Nov 13, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

November's book club selection is, "Boomerang: Travels in The New Third World" by Michael Lewis.

From Amazon.com

“Michael Lewis possesses the rare storyteller’s ability to make virtually any subject both lucid and compelling. . . . Combining his easy familiarity with finance and the talents of a travel writer, Mr. Lewis sets off in these pages to give the reader a guided tour through some of the disparate places hard hit by the fiscal tsunami of 2008, like Greece, Iceland and Ireland, tracing how very different people for very different reasons gorged on the cheap credit available in the prelude to that disaster. The book — based on articles Mr. Lewis wrote for Vanity Fair magazine — is a companion piece of sorts to The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, his bestselling 2010 book about the fiscal crisis. . . . Mr. Lewis’s ability to find people who can see what is obvious to others only in retrospect or who somehow embody something larger going on in the financial world is uncanny. And in this book he weaves their stories into a sharp-edged narrative that leaves readers with a visceral understanding of the fiscal recklessness that lies behind today’s headlines about Europe’s growing debt problems and the risk of contagion they now pose to the world.” (Michiko Kakutani - New York Times )

Members can RSVP starting today 10/11/12.

We currently don't have a location for the November meetup. If you are willing to host about 20 people in your home or know of a good public location please let me know.

Thanks.
