Child of God by Cormac McCarthy

  • Dec 12, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In this taut, chilling novel, Lester Ballard--a violent, dispossessed man falsely accused of rape--haunts the hill country of East Tennessee when he is released from jail. While telling his story, Cormac McCarthy depicts the most sordid aspects of life with dignity, humor, and characteristic lyrical brilliance.

    Hi everyone,
    We are still here at Fado. When you go through the front door go left and head all the way back. Make 2 rights. We are in the little room in the back.

    I'm wimping out on tonight ... it is too bitterly cold out there. I know I promised Paul I'd be there because I recommended the book ... but it's just too miserable outside. My deepest apologies for missing tonight.

    I usually ride my bike to the meetings but am taking public transportation or taxi this time. Don't know how reliable travel will be. I might not make meeting on time.

    Just got the book last night and even with my plowing through it, I'm just not gonna get far enough. Next time.

      I really think you should come along ... many of the topics will be broad. I'd say go online and read the New York Times book review. It will bring you up to speed with the story but then give you lost of stuff to chew on.

      Unfortunately I like Cormac McCarthy too much to do that. I need to read the book.

    I just joined and will not have time to finish the book before Thursday - ok if I come anyway?

      I say come on! Don't worry about having finished the book or even started it ... there's always something to be gained.

    Can Tuesday be the day ? Also which book are we reading .? Thank you Reena

      We usually meet on Thursdays. Fado was not available in November, so we moved it to a Tuesday.
