The next meeting of The Catapult Book Club will come to order on the evening of Thursday, May 9th at 7pm.
The current selection is Everything Matters! by Ron Currie
"Imagine that you were born with the absolute, unquestionable knowledge that the world would be destroyed in a fiery comet collision just before your 36th birthday. How would you live your life, knowing that every single thing you do or say or think is essentially futile – or at least more finite than we are comfortable thinking about? Would you use your knowledge to try and save the world? Or just your own family? Would you live your life as normally as possible or just chuck it all and drink yourself to death? Does anything you do matter at all? THIS is the premise to Ron Currie’s brilliant novel and the answer to all those burning questions is right in front of you: everything matters!" -Seth
"Mr. Currie is a startlingly talented writer whose book will pay no heed to ordinary narrative conventions.... He survives the inevitable, apt comparisons to Kurt Vonnegut and writes in a tenderly mordant voice of his own.... Throughout the story there is the sheer delight of Mr. Currie's fresh, joltingly funny imagery.... Above all "Everything Matters!" radiates writerly confidence. The excitement that drives the reader from page to page is not about the characters. It's about seeing what Mr. Currie will try next." - Janet Maslin, New York Times
