PLG Fiction Book Group discusses Jesus Saves
Led by PLG bookseller Austin, our fiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens discusses paperback fiction, reading broadly in contemporary fiction with the occasional diversion into classics. For July, the group discusses Darcey Steinke’s chilling horror story, Jesus Saves. This suburban gothic is set not among green manicured lawns and cul-de-sacs, but the trash-filled woods between subdivisions and superhighways and the strip malls and duplexes on the back side of town. It's the story of two girls: Ginger, a troubled minister's daughter; and Sandy Patrick, who was abducted from summer camp and now smiles from missing-child posters all over town. Layering the dreamscapes of Alice in Wonderland with the subculture of River's Edge, Darcey Steinke's Jesus Saves is an unforgettable passage through the depths of literary imagination.
Please note: this group will be on hiatus for the month of August.
