About the Event
SHORT & SWEET - A book club for the easily distracted and time poor.
Monthly short stories and anthology meetup held every 3rd Thursday of the month. ⚡️
Really chilled book club, the best thing about short stories is if you're not feeling one, you can always just move onto the next. No pressure to finish them all, just give it a go and come join us for a drink!
During a violent storm, a filmmaker escapes New York, accompanied by a woman who may be his therapist.
A lawyer in the throes of divorce seeks refuge at her seaside cottage only to find a vagrant girl living in it.
A dilettantish banker sees his ambitions laid bare when he comes under the influence of two strange sisters.
A group of friends gathers in the California desert for one last bacchanal, and a journalist finds his visit to the French country home of a former tennis star take a deeply unnerving turn.
Strivers, misfits, and children of privilege, the restless, sympathetic characters in Jackson's stellar short story collection, Prodigals, hew to passion and perversity through life's tempests. Theirs is a quest for meaning and authenticity in lives spoiled by self-knowledge and haunted by spiritual longing. Lyrical and unflinching, cerebral and surreal, this collection maps the degradations of contemporary life with insight and grace.
