Tres Gatos Book Club: Milkman

On Feburary 24th at 330pm, join us at Tres Gatos as we dissect, discuss, debate and drink our way through Anna Burn's MILKMAN. All are welcome at the book club, and the book is currently on sale in the Tres Gatos bookstore.

"In an unnamed city, middle sister stands out for the wrong reasons. She reads while walking, for one. And she has been taking French night classes downtown. So when a local paramilitary known as the milkman begins pursuing her, she suddenly becomes “interesting,” the last thing she ever wanted to be. Despite middle sister’s attempts to avoid him―and to keep her mother from finding out about her maybe-boyfriend―rumors spread and the threat of violence lingers. Milkman is a story of the way inaction can have enormous repercussions, in a time when the wrong flag, wrong religion, or even a sunset can be subversive. Told with ferocious energy and sly, wicked humor, Milkman establishes Anna Burns as one of the most consequential voices of our day."
