Break out of your reading rut and join us for a book discussion circle with a new book each month. We will explore new fiction and non-fiction in a friendly atmosphere led by our McGill librarians.
In April we will explore the fiction title, Less by Andrew Sean Greer
Arthur Less is a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: his boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. He can’t say yes–it would be too awkward–and he can’t say no–it would look like defeat. On his desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world. How does he arrange to skip town to avoid the wedding? Simple – accept all the invitations.
A scintillating satire of the American abroad, a rumination on time and the human heart, a bittersweet romance of chances lost. Less shows a writer at the peak of his talents raising the curtain on our shared human comedy. - Publisher
Andrew Sean Greer is the winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
