Larryville's PBR Book Club: Chapter One

What Larryville needs is a group of scenesters who read pretentious tomes and other relevant hipster texts and gather infrequently to talk about them (drunkenly) over PBRs at the Replay and the Tap. So this blog will offer occasional posts about what we're reading (written by us or maybe the bananasuit librarian or maybe others if any of you will actually agree to join us).

First choice: David Mitchell's 2004 Cloud Atlas.

Our first meeting is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 29 at 9:00 at Replay. So read Cloud Atlas before it becomes a shitty Tom Hanks film directed by the Wachowski brothers and join us and Bananasuit if you will.

From the New York Times review: "On one hand, Mitchell's strategy is boldly antithetical to what most narrative-driven novels have been up to since Cervantes. On the other hand, what Mitchell is doing is basically James Michener's ''Alaska'' with an I.Q. transplant."
