Everyone’s heard of Cloud Atlas, but the “unfilmable” book that became a movie isn’t David Mitchell’s only novel. In August, the Staff Picks Book Group will be reading Black Swan Green, which begins in this way:
“Do not set foot in my office. That’s Dad’s rule. But the phone’d rung twenty-five times. Normal people give up after ten or eleven, unless it’s a matter of life or death. Don’t they?”
Who is calling? Will the narrator answer? Pick up a copy of Black Swan Green at the circulation desk at Robbins or at the Fox Branch, and come discuss on Wednesday, August 13, at 7pm in the Robbins Library conference room on the 4th floor.
