USF Book Club: Love Life by Ray Kluun

Greetings! The next book club selection is Love Life by Ray Kluun, translated from the Dutch by Shaun Whiteside.

We will meet on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 from 12 noon – 1 pm in Kalmanovitz Hall, Room 265. Bring your lunch and tell your friends — the book club is open to the whole USF Community.

To get a copy of the book, request it through Link+. Gleeson Library is purchasing a copy but we haven’t received it yet.

From what I understand, this novel, set in Amsterdam, is dark and gritty — it tells the story of a man coping with his wife’s terminal breast cancer, so at times he is despicable but the story is told with probing honesty. I hear it’s beautifully written and is a page turner — the book club member who suggested it read it in 3 days!

To read full reviews, check out the book’s Amazon page.

Check it out and join us for a lively discussion. You don’t need a background in literary criticism to join us. You just have to like books 🙂

UPDATE: The Gleeson copy has arrived! If you want it, click “request” on its record in the catalog.
