Short stories by Eisenberg, McFarland, Englander - bonus meeting

  • Aug 25, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • Crystal's house

This month our Short Story Lovers sub-club will discuss these stories from Granta, v.2:

* "The Custodian" by Deborah Eisenberg

* "Nothing to Ask For" by Dennis McFarland

* "The Tumblers" by Nathan Englander

This is a good group for both for readers who love the short form of contemporary literature and for those of you who don't have time to read entire novels every month.

If you don't have the Granta v.2 anthology but would like to try our our short story subgroup, let Joan know, and she'll try to arrange a loaner book for a few days.

    Hi all!

    I'm really hoping to get the motivation to read the stories for this Sunday, but I'm being hit with a third trimester wall of exhaustion. I didn't want to read the stories too early like I did last time, and this time, I feel like I'm running out of time. I hope to make it. Just wanted to give you the notice, that in case I back out, it's not because I'm being a flake, I'm just POOPED!

    Hope you're all having a great week,
    Mama Jess ;)

    Looking forward to seeing you all again! This time I'll read my stories closer to the date we're meeting so I remember all the details. ;)
