Novella Group - Year #9
I can see re-reading this one - even just picking it up and skimming it. There are so many layers. We had a great discussion even though we had to meet inside and compete with some disco on the stereo since the 50-degree Chicago weather did not reflect summer at all. William Maxwell reads the audio book for this one and I would like to hear his voice tell this very quiet, powerful story. Another one where children are affected by events way more than adults can understand. Also a story where children my understand more than an adult realizes.
So thank you to my friends who join me each summer to discover more novellas! This one would be a solid selection for any book group.
