The February meeting of The Catapult Book Club will come to order on the evening of Thursday, February 14th at 7pm.
We will be discussing Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday - named one of the New York Times' 10 Books of 2018.
"Exquisite... For us, the ride is in surrendering to falling down rabbit holes to unknown places. The moment “Asymmetry” reaches its perfect ending, it’s all the reader can do to return to the beginning in awe, to discover how Halliday upturned the story again and again." —The Washington Post
"...a novel of deceptive lightness and a sort of melancholy joy. Lisa Halliday writes with tender laugh-aloud wit, but under her formidable, reckoning gaze a world of compelling characters emerges. She steps onto the literary stage with the energy of a debut novelist and the confidence of a mature writer." —Louise Erdrich
"Asymmetry poses questions about the limits of imagination and empathy—can we understand each other across lines of race, gender, nationality, and power? The fluttering way in which Halliday pursues her themes and preoccupations seems too idiosyncratic and beautiful to summarize." -The New Yorker
The current selection of the Catapult Book Club will be 20% off until the day of the next meeting. See you on February 14th!
