This month we're hosting a pair of discussion on That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo.
Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, December 12:
- 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.
By turns hilarious, rueful, and uplifting, That Old Cape Magic is a profoundly involving novel about marriage, family, and all the other ties that bind.
The book's two-part structure is simple and elegant: two weddings, a year apart, the first on Cape Cod, the second in Maine. Russo's focus in both parts is on Jack Griffin, a 57-year-old English professor who's having a "middle-age meltdown." Even while the wedding march plays for members of the younger generation, he's busy fumbling his own 34-year marriage. His bigger problem, though, is that he still harbors enough "pathological resentment" toward his parents for a therapists' convention.
