Meet to discuss this month’s selected title: THE GOLDEN STATE by LYDIA KIESLING. Book club copies are available for check-out at the GREAT NECK information desk. Adults. Registration is not required.
Book Description: In Lydia Kiesling's debut novel, we accompany Daphne, a young mother on the edge of a breakdown, as she flees her sensible but strained life in San Francisco for the high desert of Altavista with her toddler, Honey. Bucking under the weight of being a single parent--her Turkish husband is unable to return to the United States because of a "processing error"--Daphne takes refuge in a mobile home left to her by her grandparents in hopes that the quiet will bring clarity.
