Description from publisher: "Malu is from an upper-class family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background is coarse and commonplace. Jorgito's mother, a poor socialist proud of her family's social standing, places similar restrictions on her son. What neither woman recognizes is the immense strength of the bond between Malu and Jorgito. When the children learn that Malu's mother plans to leave Cuba, they decide to run away and travel to the other side of the island to find Malu's father and persuade him against signing the forms that would allow it."

Our Reel Eclectic film series continues in 2015 on the first Thursday of each month at 7 PM!

Middletown Thrall Library Presents Its Next Remarkable Reads Selection...

Tender Is the Night

A Book Discussion with Jenny Binnie

January 28, 2015, 3 PM

at Middletown Thrall Library, in our 2nd floor Community Room.

Free refreshments to be served!

About the book (from the publisher's description): "Set in the South of France in the decade after World War I, Tender Is the Night is the story of a brilliant and magnetic psychiatrist named Dick Diver; the bewitching, wealthy, and dangerously unstable mental patient, Nicole, who becomes his wife; and the beautiful, harrowing ten-year pas de deux they act out along the border between sanity and madness. In Tender Is the Night, Fitzgerald deliberately set out to write the most ambitious and far-reaching novel of his career, experimenting radically with narrative conventions of chronology and point of view and drawing on early breakthroughs in psychiatry to enrich his account of the makeup and breakdown of character and culture. Tender Is the Night is also the most intensely, even painfully, autobiographical of Fitzgerald's novels; it smolders with a dark, bitter vitality because it is so utterly true."

Free copies of this book are available for borrowing at Middletown Thrall Library!
