Morning Book Group
Wednesday December 19, 2012
Join us every third Wednesday of the month at 11 AM, from September to June, for a discussion led by a MIL staff person. This year's theme is the world of artists in fictional novels.
You can pick up a copy of this month's title at the circulation desk.
This month's book is Headlong by Michael Frayn.
"Frayn, the 'master of what is seriously funny' (Anthony Burgess), offers a procession of superbly realized characters, from the country squire gone to seed to his giddy, oversexed young wife. All are burdened by human muddle and human cravings; all are searching for a moral compass as they grapple with greed, folly, and desire. And at the heart of the clamor is Breugel's vision, its dark tones warning of the real risks of temptation and obsession. With this new novel, Michael Frayn has given us entertainment of the highest order. Supremely wise and wickedly funny, Headlong elevates Frayn into the front rank of contemporary novelists."
