Please join us in reading The Little Red Chairs by Edna O’Brien for our suggested book club monthly reading.
We will be reviewing The Little Red Chairs along with our monthly book club discussions for October 31st, 2016.
O’Brien prolific works include numerous novels, short stories, drama, poetry and non-fiction books.
This is Edna O’Brien’s latest book in over 10 years.
The Little Red Chairs is about a woman’s struggle to get back her life after betrayal. Set in Ireland, then to London and to the Hague. This book looks at the darker side of humanity as well at the light.
New York Times praises O’Brien for “celebrated gifts of lyricism and mimetic precision.”
Washington post says ” In the end, what leaves one in humbled awe of The Little Red Chairs is O’Brien’s dexterity, her ability to shift without warning – like life – from romance to horror, from hamlet to hell, from war crimes tribunal to midsummer night’s dream. And through it all, she embeds the most perplexing moral challenge ever conceived…”
It looks like an interesting read and I am looking forward to reading it.
