Next Book?

The last book club to discuss Chabon's book was lots of fun. Thanks for hosting, M.! The next proposed book is the new Pulitzer winner for fiction: Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout. Because no one had heard of it outside of this Pulitzer Nerd, please feel free to do a little research to see if it's something you're interested in reading. Here's a review from the NYT, but it was this review on NPR by Melissa Bank that really sold me - outside of, you know, winning the Pulitzer.

Other suggestions were Joan Didion's book of essays, After Henry, something by R. Bradbury (Dandelion Wine, Fahrenheit 451?) or Let the Right One In, by John Ajvide Lindqvist and Ebba Segerberg. Feel free to leave your suggestions in comments or vote on the side - but let's decide soon for the next club meeting: May 29th!
