Read with Me in May: The Monk Downstairs

Join me during the month of May for Tim Farrington’s The Monk Downstairs. It’s the story of a single mother who’s given up on men and her downstairs tenant, a former monk who’s given up on God, and the unexpected friendship-turned-romance that blooms between them.

This New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year (review) has been described by Elinor Lipman as “warm, intelligent, wry and absolutely wonderful” and Publishers Weekly says its “fluent prose, seamless dialogue, and a lovingly rendered Bay Area setting lift this novel above the pack.”
