Ciervo Blanco Book Club organizes in Madrid a book discussion in English about the novel ‘Preparation for the Next Life’, by Atticus Lish
This is a free book discussion in English. The only requirement is to have read the book!
Zou Lei, orphan of the desert, migrates to work in America and finds herself slaving in New York’s kitchens. She falls in love with a young man whose heart has been broken in another desert. A new life may be possible if together they can survive homelessness, lockup, and the young man’s nightmares, which may be more prophecy than madness.
Atticus Lish (born 1972) is an American novelist. His debut, Preparation for the Next Life, caught its independent publisher “off guard” by becoming a surprise success, winning a number of awards including the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. Lish lives in Sunset Park, Brooklyn with his wife. He is the son of influential literary editor Gordon Lish.
