Read Smart Book Discussion - The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg
Join us for a book discussion of the best-selling novel The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg. Dr. Sarah Stein, associate professor in the Department of Communication at NC State, will moderate. About the book: For more than 30 years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life together in the suburbs of Chicago. But now things are splintering apart, for one reason: Edie's enormous girth. When Richard abandons his wife, it is up to the next generation to take control. “Deeply satisfying. . . . A sharp-tongued, sweet-natured masterpiece of Jewish family life.” (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review).
