Berlin Book of the Month - The Husband’s Secret, by Liane Moriarty
Friday, September 18, 2015 - 1:00 PM
Location: Berlin Branch
Join us each month for a lively book discussion facilitated by Cynthia Hanagud and Gail Samis of Salisbury University. This month's selection, The Husband’s Secret, is described as a comedy of manners with a serious undertone. Moriarty chronicles the life of middle aged, middle class Australian women who grapple with issues like marital fidelity and moral guilt and responsibility. Ideas like "Can good people do very, very bad things?", and "What, exactly, are we responsible for, and for how long?" -- will make you think. This is a deceptively rich novel that transcends its era and place at the same time that it celebrates same.
Copies of books are available in advance at the Berlin Branch.
