Book Report from the PoPville Book Club (By Christopher)


February’s book was ‘The Gargoyle’ by Andrew Davidson. We chose the read for its romantic nature, and really, who doesn’t love a little love in February?!? The Gargoyle tells the story of a man at the height of his not-so-moral life who loses it all in a sudden car crash. From the first chapter, you get sucked into the story, following the man though his graphic burn treatments, to the vivid tales that his new friend, a psych ward beauty and stone carver extraordinaire, shares with him about their past life together. The book club gave ‘The Gargoyle’ 4 out of 5 frogs. Pick it up next time you’re at your local library…you won’t be disappointed!

Our next book is a work by Irish dramatist Martin McDonagh, titled ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane and Other Plays’. It’s sure to be a great read, so grab it, and enjoy it with a pint, then be sure to join us for our next meetings in March- Monday 3/2 at 7:00pm at the Red Derby, and Monday 3/23 at 7:00pm at the Petworth Library.

Final note – We previously read ‘The Watchmen’ with the intention of getting together for dinner and a movie when it came out in theatres, which will be the first weekend of March. We will be setting a time and date for our PoPville Book Club field trip at our next Red Derby meeting (3/2, 7:00pm) so be there!
