What: Shadyside Meeting - "If Andy Warhol Had a Girlfriend" by Alison Pace
When: Tuesday, May 18,[masked]:30 PM
5442 Walnut St
Pittsburgh, PA 15232
For the month of May, we'll be back at Doc's on the deck on a Tuesday* - even in bad weather they have the awning up so we are covered. Our book is If Andy Warhol Had a Girlfriend by Alison Pace.
Art-gallery assistant Jane Laine, recuperating after a failed love affair, really hates her odious martinet of a boss. So she is ready to go when famed sculptor Ian Rhys--Fitzsimmons conceives a project that will take him on a six-month tour. Assigned to accompany him and take care of gallery business, Jane becomes good friends with Ian, but continues to look for love in all the wrong places. This very Bridget Jones's Diary-like chick-lit novel turns laugh-out-loud funny when Jane's parents and their schnauzers are on the scene, especially during a Christmas dinner in Santa Fe during which schnauzer Elijah is the object of a bizarre ritual called "Pass the Schnauzer." Ian is an endearing character, kind and thoughtful in spite of his renown, and he is not even taken aback when Jane's aunt suggests he convert to the Lutheran faith and take up accounting. Andy Warhol quotes at the beginning of each chapter add to the alluring art-world ambience of Pace's novel. Diana Tixier Herald
