A BOOK DISCUSSION PAIRED WITH WHISKEY
In March, Bourbon Book Club attendees will discuss All That Man Is by David Szalay.
All That Man Is traces the arc of life from the spring of youth to the winter of old age by following nine men who range from a working-class ex-grunt to a pompous college student, a middle-aged loser to a Russian oligarch. Ludicrous and inarticulate, shocking and despicable, vital, pitiable, and hilarious, these men paint a picture of modern manhood. David Szalay is a master of a new kind of realism that vibrates with detail, intelligence, relevance, and devastating pathos. In All That Man Is, a Man Booker Prize finalist and the winner of the Gordon Burn Prize and the Plimpton Prize, he brilliantly illuminates the physical and emotional terrain of an increasingly globalized Europe.
The Book Club discussion will be complemented by a bourbon selected and provided by The Whiskey Attic. Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance.
Copies of All That Man Is can be purchased in paperback at The Writer’s Block Book Shop. No registration for the Club is required.
