“An elegant novel of political and cultural suspense. . . the Cold War intrigue it conjures is gripping, and Louise’s dilemmas and adventures will hold sympathetic readers in thrall.” —The Wall Street Journal
There’s so much to discuss in The Lunar Housewife by Caroline Woods that we had to make a Book Club Kit! The novel is a stylish and suspenseful historical page-turner following up-and-coming journalist, Louise Leithauser, who stumbles onto a web of secrets, deceptions, and mysteries at a popular new literary magazine–inspired by the true story of CIA intervention in Cold War American arts and letters. Louise is also hard at work on a novel that takes a new, subversive shape as she starts to question what’s really going on and if there’s anyone she can truly trust.
We hope you enjoy this Book Club Kit, complete with a letter from the author, discussion questions, suggested reading, and more. From a classic cocktail with a twist to lobster thermidor and a cool playlist, we’ve got everything to take you back to 1950’s New York City and make your next book club meeting the bee’s knees.
