PLG Fiction Book Group discusses A Lucky Man

Led by one of our PLG booksellers, our fiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens discusses paperback fiction, reading broadly in contemporary fiction with the occasional diversion into classics. For September, the group discusses Jamel Brinkley’s short story collection A Lucky Man, a 2018 finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction. In the nine expansive, searching stories of A Lucky Man, fathers and sons attempt to salvage relationships with friends and family members and confront mistakes made in the past. Jamel Brinkley’s stories, in a debut that announces the arrival of a significant new voice, reflect the tenderness and vulnerability of black men and boys whose hopes sometimes betray them, especially in a world shaped by race, gender, and class—where luck may be the greatest fiction of all.

Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
