Our next pick for The
Our next pick for The WD’s Book Club is I Love Dick, by Chris Kraus, a milestone of feminist literature that has become a cult classic. The book is now in vogue again, 20 years after being published, due to the recent Amazon Studios series adaptation by Jill Soloway (Transparent).
I Love Dick is a “novel” about a woman named Chris Kraus and her unrequited, increasingly obsessive love for a cultural critic named Dick. Romantic abjection, ambiguous and often frustrating intimacies, artistic devotion and ambition, social communion and alienation… one central drama: a female consciousness struggling to live a meaningful life.
Our discussion will be followed by a screening in our backyard of the first 2 chapters of I Love Dick.
Book Club members (meaning you just show up) will enjoy a 10% discount on the next book club title and on every item they’ll ask for at the bar during the Book Club meeting.
Let’s meet up and talk dic… err… Literature.
