The Lacuna – Barbara Kingsolver
This is the story of Harrison Shepherd. His parents are separated, and he grows up in the 1930s, living variously with his American father and Mexican mother. Having not started reading the novel yet – the real-life discussion group will be meeting on March 27 to talk about it – I don’t have many more details than that; but it’s by the author of the Poisonwood Bible, it won the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2010, and it’s supposed to be very good.Please don’t post any plot-spoilers before the March 27 meeting date (details of which, if anyone fancies coming along, will be appearing here: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/event.php?eid=171217802926408) but do get reading – and posting any non-plot-spoiling reviews/comments. Thanks!
