Barely a Book Club

Teetering on the edge of a normal book club

Hello fellow BBCers. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. We had a really great discussion about “How to be Good” on Saturday. Here are some highlights…
– Man writing as a woman, did he use her position in the family to allow him to write more like a man?
– David thought being good was helping the world while the wife (totally just forgot her name) thought being good was being a doctor and helping a few.
– Ant believes the last line of the book ruined the whole novel for her. (I agree).

We are not meeting this weekend so sleep in. Our next book is American Pastoral by Phillip Roth. We also discusses only meeting every other week for the summer. Should that start in May or June? Let me know your thoughts.
