The next meeting of The Catapult Book Club will come to order on the evening of Thursday, September 12th at 7pm.
The current selection is Graffiti Palace by A.G. Lombardo.
"What an audacious debut: a novel that reframes The Odyssey as a journey across Los Angeles during the Watts Riots. Beautiful, hard-edged, challenging, and unexpected, Graffiti Palace recalls the linguistic exuberance of Thomas Pynchon while evoking the surreal landscape of a city under siege. At the same time, it never loses sight of the essential human drama—the desire, despite (or because of) everything that’s happening, to find a passage home.” —David Ulin
"A performative resistance to authority, channeling the multiple contrasting voices and stories of Los Angeles into a mural exploding with color and contradictions." —Los Angeles Review of Books
