The Other Book Club's June selection: Foucault in California by Simeon Wade

by Nick DiMartino - Special to the SGN

Talking about the experience you've had reading a book is one of the greatest pleasures a good book offers. Only one person came to the four meetings in April discussing Tennessee Williams. Only one came to the four meetings in May discussing Leading Men. I love hearing other people's ideas about books. I've sat alone waiting in the café once too often. So let me say, I'd sure love to know what you think of Simeon Wade's Foucault in California, in which almost all the people in the book are gay, though it's not about sex - it's about a gay guy getting his gay hero, the French philosopher, to join him dropping acid in Death Valley in 1975. Just the story of how the manuscript survived is a heartfelt tale of determined journalism. But if not, if no one comes to the June meetings, it will be the last selection of our club.

It's a short, lovely little book - with a glossy white cover showing a handsome photo of bald Foucault wearing Technicolor-infused sunglasses. It only takes a couple days to read. I'd love to know what you think of it! It costs $22 - tell the cashier at University Book Store you're buying it for the book club, and get 20% off.

I'll be at the University Book Store's charming bookstore café on two Wednesdays, June 12 and June 19 at 6 pm. I'll wait to see if anyone joins me. If not, I want to thank all of you for a long-lived book club under several names - from 2009 to 2019. I've thoroughly enjoyed hearing your thoughts and seeing the ways you read. Joe Derr taught me to notice which characters lied in novels. What a gift! You've kindly supported my own writing. A number of you have become my friends. Maybe I'll have a tableful of members again in June, but if not - THANK YOU for some wonderful conversations about books!
