Talking About Books   

4.00pm Tuesday 30 October
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman has been the literary runaway success this year. Written in the first person, it won the 2018 Costa Debut Novel Award and was Book of the Year at the British Book Awards as well as a No 1 bestseller for the New York Times and the Sunday Times. It has been translated into
30 languages and is currently being made into a major film. The heroine, hailed as a truly original literary creation, is a lonely outsider, a slightly odd social misfit and the reasons for her social isolation are examined with humor and compassion. Gail Honeyman was in her 40s and working full-time as a university administrator when she submitted some work in progress for the Scottish Book Trust’s “Next Chapter Award” and one of the judges spotted her potential.
As with all our book choices, a copy is available from the Gura Family Memorial Library but you might also enjoy reading it on your iPad or Kindle. Our Talking about Books group is led by Judy Frankel and you’re welcome to come whether or not you’ve read the book. There’s no book club membership but please let us know if you would like to be on the Talking About Books mailing list. Suggestions for future book choices always welcome!
