FG Fiction Book Group discusses Theft: A Love Story
At Greene Grape Annex
Led by Greenlight general manager Alexis, our fiction book group in Fort Greene discusses paperback fiction, reading broadly in contemporary fiction with the occasional diversion into classics. For September, the group discusses Theft: A Love Story by Booker Prize-winning Australian author Peter Carey. Michael "Butcher" Boone is an ex- “really famous" painter, now reduced to living in a remote country house and acting as caretaker for his younger brother, Hugh. Alone together they've forged a delicate equilibrium, a balance instantly destroyed when a mysterious young woman named Marlene walks out of a rainstorm and into their lives. Beautiful, smart, and ambitious, she's also the daughter-in-law of the late great painter Jacques Liebovitz. Soon Marlene sets in motion a chain of events that could be the making--or the ruin--of them all.
Greene Grape Annex is located at 753 Fulton Street, across the street from the bookstore.
