Classic, but…

Bootleg June 2018:  Guest Post by Liz

We had six tonight to discuss Invisible Man, Liz’s pick. Powerful, challenging on different levels, stimulating conversation and questions. We toasted Shelley for her recent birthday (Sunday), saw photos of Kitty and Barry’s new home in Annapolis, welcomed Rose to book club with interest in her family/kids, and were happy to be together. Missed having Katie, Marie, Sue, Viviane, Karen S. invisible man

Liz selected the book because she has wanted to read a “classic” that addressed civil rights in the US as this is still, unfortunately, a problem in the US and doesn’t appear to be getting better anytime soon. 

Most didn’t care for it, as it was verbose and confusing – too long for an allegory story.  Ground breaking for its time and likely popular in haughty literary circles.
