Paul's Book Club, April edition: Disobedience
Jane Hamilton is one of our finest contemporary writers of fiction. She’s never written a bad book. I chose Disobedience for Book Club because, as I thought back to the book, many lively, touching, and wildly funny scenes came immediately to mind. I became hungry for a reread, the way one becomes hungry for a favorite apple pie.
In the novel, a boy (Henry), setting up his mother’s email, discovers that she is having a passionate love affair with a wonderfully goofy European musician (his emails are very funny). Henry has no idea what to do, and this of course gives us a story.
Disobedience is the April selection for Paul’s Book Club.
We’ll meet at Room B in the Public Library, April 17 at 7 PM. See you there.
