The October selection is Let Me be Frank With You (Fiction) by Richard Ford. This is the story of Frank Bascombe (the protagonist in Ford’s earlier books) as he is “confronting his aging self and, at the same time, a New Jersey coastline recently ravaged by

Hurricane Sandy.” (Amazon Best Book of 11/2014) “Bascombe … attempts for reconcile, interpret and console a world undone by calamity. It is a moving and wondrous and extremely funny odyssey.” (Amazon). It is “… caustically hilarious, warmly philosophical, and emotionally lush …
In each neatly linked tale, Frank ruminates misanthropically, wittily, and wisely about love, family, friendship, race, politics, and the mystery of the self.” (Booklist)

Please join us at noon on October 4 in the Fireside Room to discuss this engaging book
