The Friend by Sigrid Nunez

Monday • September 24 • 6pm

U District store

Join Nick's Picks book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Sigrid Nunez mixes the memoir and the novel to her own delightful ends in this funny, touching, utterly original account of a woman devastated by her best friend's suicide who feels compelled to adopt her friend's humungous Great Dane, Apollo.

Dogs aren't allowed in her building. The supervisor plans to evict her. Her friends say the apartment smells. The dog is mourning the loss of his owner as much as the author.

Does it really help a writer to write about her loss? Youll be glad Nunez did, in this heartfelt love song to writing, reading, friendship, and pet ownership.

In the spring of 1939, three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer.

But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety.
