Tom's Book Club, Fall 2014

Tom's Book Club, Fall 2014

Our latest book club selection is Mount Terminus by David Grand. Eleven years in the making, Mount Terminus is a dark, majestic bildungsroman about art, family, and overwhelming love, all at the intersection of the birth of cinema and modern Los Angeles. LARB contributor Sam Worley said of the novel, “Origin stories and mythmaking are at the heart of this book, and they are all the more resonant because their material consequences — the California water crisis, for one — are still with us today.”
