What We're Reading: & Sons

& Sons

Elderly and reclusive author A.N. Dyer's most beloved novel is Ampersand, a coming-of-age story set at an East Coast boarding school. It is a book that everyone seems to revere and still sells hundreds of thousands of copies each year. While the narcissistic Dyer has achieved great literary and financial success, he has failed miserably as a father.


What We're Reading: The Luminaries

The Luminaries

One January night in 1866, in a newly-founded town in New Zealand, the area's richest man goes missing, a local prostitute attempts suicide, and a hermit is found dead in his cabin with thousands of dollars in pure gold hidden throughout his home. Two weeks later, a group of thirteen men, all recently arrived to the area as part of a gold rush, meet to discuss what they each know about these individual events. Over the course of the evening they'll find that each of the victims had hidden pasts, secret bonds, and a common enemy in a ship captain named Francis Carver.
