MAC'S BACKS BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES MILKMAN

Mac's Backs Book Club discusses Milkman by Anna Burns.

In Northern Ireland during the Troubles of the 1970s, an unnamed narrator finds herself targeted by a high-ranking dissident known as Milkman.

"[Milkman] seeth[es] with black humor and adolescent anger at the adult world and its brutal absurdities. . . . For a novel about life under multifarious forms of totalitarian control--political, gendered, sectarian, communal--Milkman can be charmingly wry."--The New Yorker

"Brutally intelligent. . . . At its core, Milkman is [a] wildly good and true novel of how living in fear limits people."--NPR.org

Anna Burns was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She is the author of two novels, No Bones and Little Constructions, and of the novella, Mostly HeroNo Bones won the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize and was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction. She lives in East Sussex, England.

We will meet at Hunan on Coventry, just down the street from the bookstore. The book is available at the store or through our website - www.macsbacks.com - at the 20% book club discount.
