Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
by Gail Honeyman
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: she struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding unnecessary human contact, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen, the three rescue one another from the lives of isolation that they had been living. Ultimately, it is Raymond’s big heart that will help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. If she does, she'll learn that she, too, is capable of finding friendship—and even love—after all.

Smart, warm, uplifting, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .

the only way to survive is to open your heart.
 

Because we are unable to gather in person, we will discuss our selection using ZOOM.  If you want to participate but are not on the current mailing list to receive the ZOOM link, please text 773-960-1537.
 
Upcoming Selections: June 8 Little Fires Everywhere (Celeste Ng) An intricate and captivating portrait of an eerily perfect suburban town with its dark undertones not-quite-hidden from view and a powerful and suspenseful novel about motherhood…Ng explores the complexities of adoption, surrogacy, abortion, privacy, and class, questioning all the while who earns, who claims, and who loses the right to be called a mother…an impressive accomplish-ment.” (Publishers Weekly)
July 13 The Overstory is a novel by Richard Powers published in 2018. It is Powers' twelfth novel.

On 20 September 2018, The Overstory was shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize. On 15 April 2019, it was awarded the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. (Wikipedia)
