After publicly flogging my fellow book club member (her words) and having another member propose that we may need to consider group therapy, a choice was finally made:
BOTH WAYS IS THE ONLY WAY I WANT IT by Maile Meloy, a short story collection published last year but just came out in paperback.
I chose a collection of Nicholson Baker essays a year ago but this is the first short story collection ever chosen. I’m thrilled. Ever since college, I’ve always loved short stories.
And she’s only giving us a month to read it, which thrills me even more.
As much as I complained about my book club, I really love it and look forward to each and every meeting.
I’d almost say it was worth the wait, if the wait wasn’t so long…
