- G.A.R. BOOK GROUPS
Adult Book Group -
We next meet on Monday, February 4th at 6:30. Our February book will be Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday.Alice, a young American editor living in New York, is in a relationship with the famous and much older writer Ezra Blazer. Amar, an Iraqi-American economist, is on his way to visit his brother in Kurdistan when he is detained by immigration officers and spends the last weekend of 2008 in a holding room in Heathrow. Years later a BBC journalist conducts an interview with Blazer about life, love, and legacy. These three disparate narratives combine into a riveting story of love, luck, and the inextricability of life and art.Click here to order a copy for yourself.
