Larkspur- The Larkspur Book Club Pioneers discuss "Arctic Summer"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur is pleased to welcome the new book group, The Larkspur Book Club Pioneers, to the store to discuss Arctic Summer by Damon Galgut on Wednesday, January 7th at 7pm.

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!

This fictionalized biography of English author E.M. Forster focuses on Forster's many years in India and the process of writing his masterpiece, A Passage to India. This compact, finely wrought novel also addresses Forster's unforgiving childhood in England and the homosexuality he feared and repressed throughout his life. Psychologically acute without being sentimental, Forster's relationships are described with compassion and great care. Galgut is a master at constructing strange, compelling landscapes, and Arctic Summer shifts seamlessly between staid, restricting England and Cairo and vibrant, pleasantly absurd India. Moments of gentle humor shine through the sparse prose, lending Forster a humanity that makes his story all the more heartbreaking.
