The IST Library-Parent Book Club had another fascinating discussion last week on the book, Away, by Amy Bloom. We all agreed that the main character was both memorable and complex, and her story will stay with us long after we closed the book.
Our May selection is a Panda Book Award title for 2012, in the Mature category: The Tiger’s Wife, by Tea Obrecht. Our library catalog (OPAC) summarizes the book:
“Natalia, a young doctor in route to an orphanage, learns of her grandfather’s sudden death and the mysterious circumstances that led him far from home, and in her efforts to understand why her grandfather, a rational man, would choose to undertake such a journey leads her to uncover a story her grandfather never related to her about his childhood during World War II. “
