The San Diego Sunday Breakfast And Books Group Meetup

Please bring cash. Not all of our venues will give separate checks. We are meeting a week early this month in order to miss Memorial Day weekend. Our book for May will be "Trust" by Hernan Diaz. A brief description follows. Please join us for breakfast and an informal discussion. I usually arrive early and ask to be seated, but I always alert the host that we are a book club, so please feel free to ask for the book club table. Even through the roar and effervescence of the 1920s, everyone in New York has heard of Benjamin and Helen Rask. He is a legendary Wall Street tycoon; she is the daughter of eccentric aristocrats. Together, they have risen to the very top of a world of seemingly endless wealth—all as a decade of excess and speculation draws to an end. But at what cost have they acquired their immense fortune? This is the mystery at the center of Bonds, a successful 1937 novel that all of New York seems to have read. Yet there are other versions of this tale of privilege and deceit. Hernan Diaz’s TRUST elegantly puts these competing narratives into conversation with one another—and in tension with the perspective of one woman bent on disentangling fact from fiction. The result is a novel that spans over a century and becomes more exhilarating with each new revelation. More Info below.
