Come learn the secrets of being a deep reader as we read ‘Adjustments,’ a very funny book about a man not unlike Keats. And share your October pages in our Reader, Come Home roundup.
The best books are those that invite us into a world we would never have thought to enter. Adjustments by Will Willingham is such a book and such a world. Join Richard Maxon for our latest book club discussion beginning Nov. 18.
You don’t know it yet, but you need a little Pearl Jenkins in your life. In a brand new advice column, Adjustments character Pearl Jenkins offers up advice on everything from etiquette to dating.
This is a novel for our time. Forget about how it will sometimes make you laugh more than you have in a while. Or make you love the characters and wish you could meet them at the corner store. Little by little, this story also unfolds a vision for how to navigate in a world where we can’t always resolve things, a vision for choosing life.
When you wind up in one of those places that feels like it has the makings of a B horror movie, you might as well start telling the story right then. LW Lindquist has an adjuster story reminding us of how storytelling can be a way of understanding.
