LEANDRO ERLICH
We will see how Erlich rethinks moments in our everyday lives and repackages them in magical funny, nostalgic and at times disturbing ways. From the laundry to the elevator, sitting in a hair salon, a puddle on the sidewalk, a triangular garden, an underwater gathering and a journey back in time to a classroom are creations of a brilliant mind, each creating a sense of illusion that gives us all, young and old alike, an opportunity to reflect and wonder.

NININA

Ninina Bakery is MALBA’s in-house dining space. At a community table, sharing plates and a glass of wine, we will play a Q&A card game related to the exhibit before heading upstairs to the second floor.

Hope to see you there.

Book Group Meeting — Monday, October 14 — 2 pm — Palermo

The BAIN Book Group meets on the second Monday of each month.  This month we will meet in Palermo.  Please send your RSVP to tonilin@aol.com for the exact address.  Do not communicate directly with bain.downtown@gmail.com, please.  Bring suggestions for future books to the meeting or send suggestions to tonilin@aol.com.  Books for the remainder of 2019 are listed below.

At the October meeting we will be discussing Timbuktu, by Paul Oster.

Books for the Remainder of 2019

October — Timbuktu – Paul Auster, 204 pages

Meet discerning and sympathetic Mr. Bones, a dog who is unconditionally faithful to his troubled master, Willy G. Christmas. Auster’s leading human character is once again a tormented writer from Brooklyn who blindly believes in his ideals and willingly chooses to become a vagabond. But the real hero is the four-legged creature who follows him on his impromptu journeys and leads readers through the story.

This is not the kind of work Auster has been praised for, but it proves his hunger for innovation once again. Timbuktu will undoubtedly provoke mixed responses, but that is the price of originality. There is something plain yet mysteriously intricate beneath Auster’s trademark smooth writing.

November – Nothing to be Frightened Of – Julian Barnes, 258 pages

NATIONAL BESTSELLER,  A NEW YORK TIMES BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR

A memoir on mortality as only Julian Barnes can write it, one that touches on faith and science and family as well as a rich array of exemplary figures who over the centuries have confronted the same questions he now poses about the most basic fact of life: its inevitable extinction. If the fear of death is “the most rational thing in the world,” how does one contend with it? An atheist at twenty and an agnostic at sixty, Barnes looks into the various arguments for, against, and with God, and at his own bloodline, which has become, following his parents’ death, another realm of mystery.

Deadly serious, masterfully playful, and surprisingly hilarious, Nothing to Be Frightened Of is a riveting display of how this supremely gifted writer goes about his business and a highly personal tour of the human condition and what might follow the final diagnosis.

 

December – The Island of Sea Women – Lisa See, 384 pages

A new novel from Lisa See, the New York Times bestselling author of The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, about female friendship and family secrets on a small Korean island.

A book that will make you cringe, but eventually pull you in to a friendship that was special and the lives of these women of the sea. It is well written, well researched and the prose is wonderful. It is a novel that shows how much we miss, misjudge, when we fail to forgive.
