Our next selection for the book club is Saleem Haddad's Guapa, recommended by book club member Jacob. «Set over the course of twenty-four hours, Guapa follows Rasa, a gay man living in an unnamed Arab country, as he tries to carve out a life for himself in the midst of political and social upheaval.» — Amazon

Reviewer Robin Yassin-Kassab in The Guardian said «So much insightful commentary is packed into Guapa, on themes ranging from the effects of bilingualism to the symbolic appropriation of the keffiyeh, but none of it disrupts the narrative flow. This immensely readable novel is fluent, passionate and emotionally honest. Equally astute in its analysis of Arab and American mores, the book’s characters are nuanced and dynamic; it gives fresh life to the maxim 'the personal is political'.»

Plan to join us on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:30 pm at Pridelines to discuss Guapa, and share this invitation with your book-loving friends!
