Dear Notable Readers, Family Album
is the winner for our February meetup meeting! I look forward to reading and discussing this tale of family dysfunction with everyone. :-)Family Album
, by Penelope Lively. 240 pages. It?s the slow, inexorable way everyone comes to acknowledge the suppressed event at the heart of this domestic novel that makes it quietly devastating. Penelope Lively won the Booker-Prize with Moon Tiger in 1987. She is also a successful children?s book writer.
The New York Times review of the book is here
. The Amazon page for the book is here
Due to reader demand, both Beijing Coma
and Love and Summer
will be candidates for our March meetup.
Thanks for voting, and hope to see you at our next meeting!
