We are excited to announce our next two books for The Stacks Book Club. These books will be covered in the month of May on The Stacks Podcast. Make sure you read the books and then join us for our in depth conversations.
On May 9th we will discuss James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room. This book is set in the 1950s Paris and follows an American expatriate, as he finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality. James Baldwin delves into the mystery of loving and creates a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart.
On May 23rd join us as we talk about Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth. This books covers serial killer Andrew Cunanan, his unwitting victims, and the moneyed world in which they lived, and of course his final murder, that of Gianni Versace. This book is the basis for the second season of FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
As will always be the case with TSBC episodes, we will be exploring all elements of the books, so please note there will be spoilers.
