February’s Big Other Book Club – Mary Caponegro

This month we will be reading The Complexities of Intimacy by Mary Caponegro. It’s a book of 4 short stories and a novella. I will be posting on each story. Let’s try to do the first three short stories in the next ten days. The 120-page novella we can examine in the second half of this month. A wonderful resource is her Bookworm interview about this book.

  1. Looking forward to this one. Greg, if you still want some sort of discussion-wrangler, I’m willing to give it a try.

  2. Caponegro’s one of my favorite authors, and I’m very excited to have another reason to return to her work. I reread “The Daughter’s Lamentation” on the subway tonight as I made my way to Bradford Morrow’s reading at the Strand, and I was, once again, stunned by her stunning command, reminding me that stories can do so much more than telling about how this followed that.
