Greetings! The next book club selection is Love Life by Ray Kluun, translated from the Dutch by Shaun Whiteside.
We will meet on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 from 12 noon – 1 pm in Kalmanovitz Hall, Room 265. Bring your lunch and tell your friends — the book club is open to the whole USF Community.
To get a copy of the book, request it through Link+. Gleeson Library is purchasing a copy but we haven’t received it yet.
From what I understand, this novel, set in Amsterdam, is dark and gritty — it tells the story of a man coping with his wife’s terminal breast cancer, so at times he is despicable but the story is told with probing honesty. I hear it’s beautifully written and is a page turner — the book club member who suggested it read it in 3 days!
To read full reviews, check out the book’s Amazon page.
Check it out and join us for a lively discussion. You don’t need a background in literary criticism to join us. You just have to like books 🙂
UPDATE: The Gleeson copy has arrived! If you want it, click “request” on its record in the catalog.
