The next book for discussion will be Look at Me by Jennifer Egan.
Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, January 8:
• at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
• and again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.
A fashion model emerges from a car accident with her face so badly shattered it takes 80 titanium screws to reassemble it. She returns to New York still beautiful but oddly unrecognizable, a virtual stranger in the world she once effortlessly occupied. Egan threads this narrative with those of other casualties of our infatuation with the image: There’s a deceptively plain teenaged girl embarking on a dangerous secret life, an alcoholic private eye, and an enigmatic stranger who changes names and accents as he prepares an apocalyptic blow against American society.
