RSVPs for this meetup opens on Sunday, May 19 at 8:00 PM.

For our June meetup, we will be reading The Only Story by Julian Barnes. It was published in 2018 and runs 272 pages long.

The GoodReads blurb:
Would you rather love the more, and suffer the more; or love the less, and suffer the less? That is, I think, finally, the only real question.

First love has lifelong consequences, but Paul doesn’t know anything about that at nineteen. At nineteen, he’s proud of the fact his relationship flies in the face of social convention.

As he grows older, the demands placed on Paul by love become far greater than he could possibly have foreseen.

Tender and profound, The Only Story is an achingly beautiful novel by one of fiction’s greatest mappers of the human heart.
