From Kirkus Reviews: “At 29, Eleanor Oliphant has built an utterly solitary life that almost works. During the week, she toils in an office — don’t inquire further; in almost eight years no one has—and from Friday to Monday she makes the time go by with pizza and booze. Enlivening this spare existence is a constant inner monologue that is cranky, hilarious, deadpan, and irresistible.” Join us for a lively discussion of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman
