Let's "Meetup" for dinner, great wine and some thoughtfully, spirited conversations after reading Your Fathers, Where Are They? And The Prophets, Do They Live Forever? by Dave Eggers
Your Fathers, Where Are They? And The Prophets, Do They Live Forever? by Dave Eggers came in #2 in our reading choice poll. The 3rd most popular choice will be assigned to our December Meetup event.
REVIEW: From Dave Eggers, best-selling author of The Circle, a tour de force of dialogue and dark humor, coursing emotions and tight control. Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever? is the formally daring, brilliantly executed story of one man struggling to make sense of his country, seeking solutions the only way he knows how.
What do you do when you’re full of questions: what happened to missions to the moon? Why spend a trillion dollars on war? Where did America go wrong? If you’re Thomas, a young man nursing migraines and a lack of direction, this calls for drastic action. To find some answers, Thomas kidnaps a NASA astronaut and brings him to an abandoned military base on the edge of the California coast. Then the questioning begins. The answers must be honest. The back and forth might even hurt. It might get uncomfortable. But eventually the truth will emerge.
Dinner will be held at Birdie G's in Santa Monica. There will be a limit to sixteen dinner guests so please RSVP early to avoid disappointment.
The group check will be divided evenly among all of the evening's attendees at the conclusion of the meal.
