Pacifica Book Club: 'Lamentation' May 23rd at Florey's!
Florey's welcomes you to our book club!
***Tuesday, May 23rd, 7:00pm-8:30pm***
Come by for a chat about our May book, 'Lamentation' by Joe Clifford.
About the book:
In a frigid New Hampshire winter, Jay Porter is trying to eke out a living and maintain some semblance of a relationship with his former girlfriend and their two-year-old son. When he receives an urgent call that Chris, his drug-addicted and chronically drunk brother, is being questioned by the sheriff about his missing junkie business partner, Jay feels obliged to come to his rescue.
After Jay negotiates his brother’s release from the county jail, Chris disappears into the night. As Jay begins to search for him, he is plunged into a cauldron of ugly lies and long-kept secrets that could tear apart his small hometown and threaten the lives of Jay and all those he holds dear.
Powerful forces come into play that will stop at nothing until Chris is dead and the information he harbors is destroyed.
About the author:
From homeless junkie to successful author, Joe Clifford has dedicated his life to education and the craft of writing and helping other ex-junkies find a voice and a platform for their creative energies. He is the author of several acclaimed books, including Lamentation and December Boys in the Jay Porter series. He earned his MFA from Florida International University in 2008, before returning to the Bay Area, where he currently lives with his wife and two sons.
We hope to see you!
