East Valley Book Club October Meetup

Well, August was a smaller group, but the discussion was a perfect example of why we do this . . . to gain insight and further value the books we read.

For October, we have chosen "Life after Life" by Kate Atkinson.  Here is what Amazon has to say:

Every time Ursula Todd dies, she is born again. Each successive life is an iteration on the last, and we see how Ursula's choices affect her, those around her, and--so boldly--the fate of the 20th-century world. Most impressive is how Kate Atkinson keeps the complexity of her postmodern plotting so nimble. Life After Life approaches the universe in both the micro- and macro sense, balancing the interior lives of Ursula's friends and family with the weight of two World Wars. (How many writers can make domestic drama as compelling as the London Blitz?) Life After Life is an extraordinary feat of narrative ambition, an audacious genre-bender, and a work of literary genius


Can't wait to see everyone for this amazing discussion!

    I have to work due to a schedule change but I will try to come bye as soon as I get off work and if anyone is still there I'd like to at least say hi. I am reading this book but am not finished yet. It is hard to follow.
