This week’s book-club selection

Curated by the Friar himself:

My favorite is Middle-Aged English Professor Inexplicably Attractive to Lithe Young Student. More than a few books that don’t have that sequence as their main narrative still feature it as one of the storyline features. There’s gotta be some reason Robert Langdon keeps partnering up with the young hawties that follow him around while Dan Brown has him uncover history that doesn’t exist and save the world.

This dynamic also informs, oh, half of Woody Allen’s movies since Stardust Memories.

From this same collection, one I’ve read in several translations:

A Dysfunctional Family Bonds Over Tragic Event

Soon to be a minor motion picture. Or several of them.

    There’s a reason why it’s called fiction, no?
