Christopher is back at it this month, and will be kindly leading us through a reading of
The Book Of Liz by Amy and David Sedaris.
Sister Elizabeth Donderstock is Squeamish, has been her whole life. She makes cheese balls (traditional and smoky) that sustain the existence of her entire religious community, Clusterhaven. However, she feels unappreciated among her Squeamish brethren and decides to try her luck in the outside world. Along the way, she meets a Cockney-speaking Ukrainian immigrant couple who find her a job waiting tables at Plymouth Crock, a family restaurant run almost entirely by recovering alcoholics.Things are going great for Liz until she's offered a promotion to manager. Unfortunately, Liz has a sweating problem and to get the job she'll have to fix it. Meanwhile, back at Clusterhaven, Liz's compatriots just can't seem to duplicate her cheese ball recipe and it's going to cost them their quaint, cloistered lifestyle. They are panic-stricken and desperate, and are sure she sabotaged the recipe. Does Liz go through with the operation? Can the Squeamish be saved? Will the cheese balls ever taste good again?
Sounds crazy! (and right up my alley if you ask me!!)
