The Association of Small Bombs by Karen Mahajan

A bomb—one of the many “small” bombs that go off seemingly unheralded across the
world—detonates in the Delhi marketplace. A young man named Mansoor survives, bearing the
physical and psychological effects of the bomb. After a brief stint at university in America, Mansoor returns to Delhi, where his life becomes entangled with the mysterious and charismatic Ayub, a fearless young activist. Karan Mahajan writes brilliantly and provocatively about the effects of terrorism on victims and perpetrators.

 

Afternoon Book Club meets from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm on the 3rd Thursday every month. Click here for 2018 Afternoon Book Club List
Next selection on Thursday September 20,  2 pm to 3 pm.

Sweet Lamb of Heaven by Lydia Millet

A young mother, Anna, is fleeing her cold and unfaithful husband, a businessman who’s just launched
his first campaign for political office. Blending domestic thriller and psychological horror, this
compelling page-turner follows a mother fleeing her estranged husband. A double-edged and
satisfying story with a strong female protagonist, a thrilling plot, and a creeping sense of the
apocalyptic, Sweet Lamb of Heaven builds to a shattering ending with profound implications for its
characters―and for all of us.
