For the month of August, in the lead up to the return of our bookclubs in September, we are going to suggested a couple of books a week that you might not normally pick up while browsing our shelves.
The fourth book we want to suggest is:
Lacking Character by Curtis White
This book is White’s long awaited return to fiction, and is one of America’s most vibrant ‘transcendental buffoonery’.
A masked man appears in the night proclaiming a matter of life and death. Except he’s not. He’s trying to get attention from a video game playing burnout to help him enrol in some community college classes. The Exchange is badly botched and the masked man is lost in a maddening America encountering absurdities at every turn.
This books asks us to remember what it’s like to laugh!
