A perfectly good family by Lionel Shriver (March BRC book group)
The Bognor Regis campus book club will be meeting to discuss A perfectly good family by Lionel Shriver on Wednesday 25th April in St Michael’s F3. Any member of staff is welcome to join us. Please book your space by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Following the success of the book and film ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’, ‘A Perfectly Good Family’ is coming back into print after being unavailable for years.
Corlis McCrea moves back into her family’s grand mansion in North Carolina after her parents have died. The house has been left to three siblings. Each heir wants the house. Yet to buy the other out, two siblings must team against one. Just as in girlhood, Corlis is torn between allying with the decent but fearful youngest and the iconoclastic eldest. ‘A Perfectly Good Family’ is a stunning examination of inheritance, literal and psychological: what we take from our parents, what we discard, and what we are stuck with, like it or not.
Looking forward to hearing what you think of this book. New members are always welcome and if you cannot attend the meeting please let me know what you think of this book.
