María Luisa’s Café con Medialunas Book Club
Thursday, April 24 at 10:30 am
Welcome back to the Spring edition of our Hispanic fiction book club. Join us for an entertaining hour-long book discussion of the novel: The infatuations written by the award-winning Spanish author Javier Marías.
This thought-provoking novel is driven by a seemingly random murder that we discover through Ms. Dolz’s imagination and infatuations.
“A woman might notice a couple meeting every day in the same café, discover later that the man has been stabbed to death by a demented beggar, and decide to speak to the widow the next time she sees her. Each of these events seems whimsical and arbitrary and yet, as Javier Marías shows in this masterly novel, chance is nothing but the result of our own negligent reading. Read in the proper order, from the first to the last chapter, everything we do and everything we witness, however unlikely or disconnected, fits into a story in which we are both narrators and protagonists.” — Alberto Manguel.
