Fort Greene Graphic Novel Book Group discusses Beverly
Led by Greenlight bookseller Nicholas, our new graphic novel book group in Fort Greene reads and discusses comics and graphic novels in a variety of genres. For January, the group discusses Beverly by Nick Drnaso. The modern lost souls of Beverly struggle with sexual anxieties that are just barely repressed and social insecurities that undermine every word they speak. Time passes, bodies change sizes, realities blur with fantasies, truths disintegrate, childhood comforts turn uncomfortable. Again and again, the civilized façades of Nick Drnaso’s pitch-perfect suburban landscapes crack in the face of violence and quiet brutality. Drnaso's debut graphic novel leaves you haunted and squirming and longing for more.
Greene Grape Annex is located at 753 Fulton Street, across the street from the bookstore.
Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
