Five of us met to discuss Look Me in the Eye by John Elder Robison. This is a very interesting book about Robison’s experience as an Aspergian (as he puts it.) Asperger’s is becoming more of a common diagnosis in our society and almost everyone in the group knows someone on the autism spectrum, so it helped inform the discussion. Robison is Augusten Burroughs’ brother and we talked about his memoir, Running With Scissors.
And, as always, we discussed other good books we have been reading:
The Ladies of Garrison Gardens by Louise Shaffer, the sequel to The Three Miss Margarets, March’s book club selection
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo
Defending Jacob by William Landay
