This month the readers are discussing Delicious Foods by James Hannaham. This is the gripping story of three unforgettable characters: a mother, her son, and the drug that threatens to destroy them. Through Darlene’s haunted struggle to reunite with Eddie, through the efforts of both to triumph over those who would enslave them, and through the irreverent and mischievous voice of the drug that narrates Darlene’s travails, Hannaham’s daring and shape-shifting prose infuses this harrowing experience with grace and humor.
Dawn Neumann (9534 Circle S Drive, Helotes; 695-4501) will host the group at 7 p.m. November 10. Everyone is welcome, but please let Dawn know ahead of time if you’re planning to attend.
