January Book Club: In Praise of Messy Lives

By at 9:49 am

in praise of messy lives katie roiphe kveller book clubWe’re very excited to announce our next pick for the Kveller book club!

For this month, we’ll stick with nonfiction and dissect the latest essay collection from Katie Roiphe, In Praise of Messy Lives. Roiphe, a journalist, essayist, literary critic, and mother of two, is known for writing that elicits passionate response from her readership–to put it mildly. In this collection (named on the best books of the year by The New York Times), she tackles “narrow-minded conventions” (like our nation’s obsession with “healthiness” above all else) and examines topics as varied as Facebook, Hillary Clinton, divorce, and of course, motherhood.

Buy your copy here and then join us for a discussion about the book right here on the blog on Wednesday, January 30th.

*As always, if you buy the book–or anything else–by using our link to Amazon,
Kveller will receive a portion of the profit. What a mitzvah!*
