All for Nothing

On Monday, Sept. 10th, at 7 p.m., downstairs at 52 Prince Street, join the International Literature Book Club, led by Sarah McNally. We will discuss All for Nothing by German author Walter Kempowski, translated by Anthea Bell; introduction by Jenny Erpenbeck.  

"Kempowski's idiosyncratic genius lies in his ability to weave this accumulation of human fallibility into something greater. His perspective on a grim slice of history steadily broadens out to become visionary, lending his novel the irresistible pull of great tragedy." -- The Economist

This week we will be discussing the second half of Dawn Powell's Turn, Magic Wheel.

"Each chapter slips us into the consciousness and conversation of a group of worldly, needy New Yorkers, and keeps them afloat on the sounds and sensations, the dash, squalor and ugly beauty of the city." —Margo Jefferson, The New York Times
