February Book Meeting

February: The Razor's Edge by W. Somerset Maugham

From Wikipedia "The Razor's Edge tells the story of Larry Darrell, an American pilot traumatised by his experiences in World War I, who sets off in search of some transcendent meaning in his life. The story begins through the eyes of Larry's friends and acquaintances as they witness his personality change after the War. His rejection of conventional life and search for meaningful experience allows him to thrive while the more materialistic characters suffer reversals of fortune. The book was twice adapted into film, first in 1946 starring Tyrone Power and Gene Tierney, and Herbert Marshall as Maugham and Anne Baxter as Sophie, and then a 1984 adaptation starring Bill Murray."

 

Hope to see you there!

    Good, friendly discussion. BTW recent discoveries of differences in men & women's brain wiring can be read about here: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-mens-brains-are-wired-differently-than-women/ .

    Should provoke interesting discussion on the merit of
    following one's muse versus succumbing to what one is expected to do to become a viable and contributing
    member of society.What exactly is Larry's enigmatic quest and do you think he will ever attain it?
