Titles & Tea Book Group


Our Book Club selection for Tuesday’s “Titles & Tea” on July 23rd is “The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake” by Aimee Bender.  This novel is a work of magical realism. It is a quiet but utterly compelling family drama with a very prominent magical element that adds tension to the story. It’s a luminous tale about the enormous difficulty of loving someone fully when you know too much about them. It is heartbreaking and funny, wise and sad, and confirms Aimee Bender’s place as “a writer who makes you grateful for the very existence of language.”
