De Lees een Boek - Book Club is een boekenclub zonder ingewikkeld gezwets over hoogstaande literaire werken en ingewikkelde passages waarvan je 70% van de woorden niet kent. We lezen elke maand een boek en bepreken deze tijdens een maandelijkse meetup.

“In a book I am reading the author talks about word people versus fist people. As if words could not also be fists. Aren't often fists.”

When a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane traumatized by the inexplicable disappearance of its master, and by the threat of eviction: dogs are prohibited in her apartment building.

The Friend by Sigrid Nunez is the February book pick for the Lees een Boek - Book Club. Despite the fact that we’ll read an English book, the meet up will be held in Dutch.
