Later this month for BOOK CLUB, we’ll be discussing The Marriage Artist, by Andrew Winer (Tuesday, October 25th here on Linus’s Blanket), but now it’s time give away next month’s BOOK CLUB selection. In November we will be starting our foray into Algonquin Books with, The Taste of Salt, by Martha Southgate.
The Taste of Salt discussion will take place on Tuesday, November 15 on Jen’s blog – Devourer of Books. BOOK CLUB is earlier than normal this month to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday.
From the publisher about The Taste of Salt:
Josie Henderson loves the water and is fulfilled by her position as the only senior-level black scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. In building this impressive life for herself, she has tried to shed the one thing she cannot: her family back in landlocked Cleveland. Her adored brother, Tick, was her childhood ally as they watched their drinking father push away all the love that his wife and children were trying to give him. Now Tick himself has been coming apart and demands to be heard.
Weaving four voices into a beautiful tapestry, Southgate charts the lives of the Hendersons from the parents first charmed meeting to Josie ‘s realization that the ways of the human heart are more complex than anything seen under a microscope.
