Discussion Notes: Manhattan Beach
In September we read Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan.
Next month we will read Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan.
This week we welcome back Colette Sartor who joined us on the weekly short story discussion podcast to discuss “The Proxy Marriage” by Maile Meloy on Ep 123. Colette will be joining the bookclub as a regular host. Hooray!
Gerald, Anais, and Colette discuss Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan. In 2017, the novel was long listed for the National Book Award and selected by Time magazine as one of its top ten novels of that year. This historical crime novel gripped all three hosts with its broody mood, brilliant prose, and vivid characters. Through discussion, they try to unravel meaning from Egan’s twisty, fast-paced plot.

We air the first Friday of every month, and discuss the books on Twitter between shows using #LRHBookclub.
