Book Discussion:The Examined Life:How We Lose and Find Ourse... by Stephen Grosz

It will be a hybrid meet: We'll be meeting in person in Los Angeles for those interested, AND I'll have the Zoom meeting open simultaneously. Join whichever you prefer.
I've really enjoyed discussing books with people from afar on Zoom, but miss meeting live. I'm interested to see how this goes.

About the book:
"A moving collection of short, personal encounters between a psychoanalyst and his patients, The Examined Life reveals how the art of insight can illuminate the most complicated, confounding, and human of experiences. Ultimately, these stories show us not only how we love ourselves but how we might find ourselves.... they uncover hidden feelings behind ordinary behavior." 240 pages

Book Discussion:The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman

Wurstk√ľche - Downtown - Los Angeles

I've really enjoyed discussing books with people from afar on Zoom, but miss meeting live.

About the book:

"The author...blends in many of his own unique touches that render the proceedings fiendishly clever and brilliantly funny. The whole narrative is held together and driven forward by its perfectly formed characters ... a compelling whodunit complete with red herrings, unexpected twists, and a pair of police officers who, despite their best efforts, always manage to be one step behind their amateur counterparts. At the same time, and without reducing any of his carefully built-up momentum, Osman allows his main characters to experience senior moments or reflect on growing old. There is regular humor but also bouts of tragicomedy...and moments of real poignancy."
