June 3 @ 7 PM: The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn
The Woman in the Window is a seductive and unpredictable novel. Finn’s protagonist Anna Fox is a child psychologist who lives alone in a New York suburb with a case of agoraphobia so debilitating she hasn’t left the house in months. To occupy her time Anna watches film noir classics from her vast collection, interacts with people online, and sometimes spies on her neighbors. It’s all very innocuous until she sees a horrible crime take place in the house across the park, recently inhabited by a new family. Call the police and report it, right?
The Afternoon Book Club meets from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm on the 3rd Thursday every month.
June 20 @ 2 PM: The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
Here is Kazuo Ishiguro’s profoundly compelling portrait of Stevens, the perfect butler, and of his fading, insular world in post-World War II England. Stevens, at the end of three decades of service at Darlington Hall, spending a day on a country drive, embarks as well on a journey through the past in an effort to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving the “great gentleman,” Lord Darlington. But lurking in his memory are doubts about the nature of his own life.
