The New York Times recently ranked the 50 best memoirs of the last 50 years, and Fierce Attachments came in at number one.
Scathing, surprising, and full of life, the book tells the true story of a mother and daughter in New York City. It's about complicated family dynamics, the quest for purpose, and the mysteries of the human heart.
And it's extremely readable. The pages fly by. As the novelist Jonathan Lethem says, "The book is an object of furious motion, humming with its own energy."
We will read it together over four weeks, and gather on Saturdays to explore it in depth, with lectures by Christopher Frizzelle followed by open discussions.
If you miss any of the meetings, no problem: A recording of each session will be sent to all ticket holders automatically.
