Next Book Café Novel Chosen Book Cafe -Eligible, by Curtis Sittenfeld, is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Liz is a magazine writer in her late 30's who lives in New York City but returns to her childhood home, along with her older sister Jane, to help out after a health scare with their dad. Just like the sprawling Tudor home they grew up in, the family is in a state of disarray. Their other three sisters are moving through life unfocused and Mrs. Bennet's focus is to marry off her daughters, especially with Jane's 40th birthday coming up. “Sittenfeld writes so well – her sentences are so good and her story so satisfying… As a reader, let me just say: Three cheers for Curtis Sittenfeld and her astute, sharp and ebullient anthropological interest in the human condition.”—Sarah Lyall, The New York Times Book Review Come on in and pick up a copy of Eligible for our Book Cafe gathering on Thursday, April 6th at 1:00 p.m.
