FEBRUARY BOOK CLUB PICK!
NEON IN DAYLIGHT by Hermione Hoby
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15TH
ABOUT THE BOOK: In the stifling summer of 2012, 25-year-old Kate arrives in Manhattan from England on a six-month visa. She's catsitting in the apartment of her mother's friend, who's off on a postdivorce European jaunt. Timidly at first, Kate sets out to explore the city while tethered via Skype to her miserable boyfriend back home. Through an extraordinary series of coincidences, Kate independently meets 19-year-old Inez, a recent high school grad, and burned-out college professor Bill, the aging author of a decades-old, one-hit best seller, and becomes immersed in their drug- and alcohol-fueled worlds. Bill just happens to be Inez's father. As all three lurch into ever more dangerous behavior (Inez acts out perversion fantasies for men she finds on Craigslist), the tension and temperatures among the three urbanites continue to rise.
