Dive Bar Book Club OC Meetup

January's book is: The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall

Welcome to the Dive Bar Book Club OC!!! We're a fun group, so if you like to have a couple of cocktails in a great little place, and talk about a great read, join us!!

On the second Tuesday of each month, we'll meet in a different place in the general area of HB, NB, Irvine, Costa Mesa or Tustin. Dive bar, or upscale bar, we'll mix it up each month.

Join us - the goal is to laugh, have a great, interesting discussion on a bestseller book, and enjoy our libations while we're doing it!! If you like contemporary fiction and can handle your liquor, we want to meet you!!

Golden Richards, husband to four wives, father to twenty-eight children, is having the mother of all midlife crises. His construction business is failing, his family has grown into an overpopulated mini-dukedom beset with insurrection and rivalry, and he is done in with grief: due to the accidental death of a daughter and the stillbirth of a son, he has come to doubt the capacity of his own heart. Brady Udall, one of our finest American fiction writers, tells a tragicomic story of a deeply faithful man who, crippled by grief and the demands of work and family, becomes entangled in an affair that threatens to destroy his family’s future. Like John Irving and Richard Yates, Udall creates characters that engage us to the fullest as they grapple with the nature of need, love, and belonging.

    Thanks to whoever passed on the tip she got from someone to not take Life of Pi so literally (I don't think we ever exchanged names). I'm going to go to the movie and think of it more in terms of Wizard of Oz.

    I didn't finish reading the book. I am new (1st time) and don't know your policy on this. Should I wait until next month or is it OK to come unfinished?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
