The next meeting of the Runnemede Library Book Club is scheduled for Thursday September 6, 2018 @ 6:30pm in the library.
The book selection for this month is Tangerine by Christine Mangan. The library has a hard cover copy and copies are available on the Kindle.
About the Book.
The last person Alice Shipley expected to see arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the accident in Bennington, the two friends-once inseperable roommates-haven't spoken in over a year. But there Lucy was, trying to make things right and return to their old rhythms. Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy- always fearless and independent- helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country.
But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice- she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice's husband, John, goes missing and Alice starts to qiestion everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind.
Tangerine is a sharp dagger of a book- a debut so tightly wound, so replete with exotic imagery and charm, so full of precise details and extrordinary craftsmanship, it will leave you absolutely breathless.
These are some of the books the RPL Club has read. So many books, so little time!
Join any time. 1st Thursday of the month @ 6:30pm in the library.
