October Book Club Selection: "Super Sad True Love Story"

Cover image for the novel Super Sad True Love Story, by Gary ShteyngartMeet Lenny Abramov: a 39-year-old balding bibliophile who works at a place where rich people looking for immortality go called Post-Human Services in a not-too-far-away-future. On a trip to Rome, he meets and falls hopelessly in love with cute but cruel 24-year-old Eunice Park, a determined graduate who immediately puts her minor in Assertiveness to work by updating Lenny so he’s more compatible with a world where the U.S. has effectively bowed down to their Chinese creditors, there is chaos in the streets, and only the rich are sure to survive.

The Mt. Pleasant Library Book Club will next meet Wednesday, November 2, at 7 p.m. at La Casa, located right next door to the interim library.
