For our last meeting of 2017, Read Between the Wines is tacking Drown by
A coming of age story of unparalleled power, Drown introduced the
world to Junot Diaz's extraordinary talents. It also introduced an
unforgettable narrator - Yunior, the haunted, brilliant young man who
tracks his family's precarious journey from the barrios of Santo Domingo
to the tenements of industrial New Jersey, and their epic passage from
hope to loss to something like love. Here is the soulful, unsparing
book that made Diaz a sensation.
We will be gathering at Asiya's home in Toorak, so please RSVP to Dina if
you'd like to come along.
