Happy Baby is the story of Theo, once an orphan in the Chicago foster care system and now a grown man living in California. Theo, saturated with memories of abuse and heartache, and filled with the simple wish to understand more about himself, returns to Chicago to reconnect with an old girlfriend from his troubled youth. Told in reverse order, this edgy and powerful novel slowly and subtly turns mysterious, as we attempt to recognize the root of Theo's plight and the source for his quietly wavering humanity.
As some of you know, we get settled in and chat at 7:30 and begin discussion at 8.
We are asking for one or two dollars (no more!) from the attendees of each meeting to offset the cost of paying for the Meetup account. As always, drinks or snacks are welcome but not required. Excited to get the new year of books start with all the gay ladies!
