Summary This month, First Tuesday Book Club host Jennifer Byrne and regular panellists Marieke Hardy and Jason Steger are joined on the panel by journalist and author Indira Naidoo and musician Dave Graney. The two books being reviewed by the club this month are the fast-paced and very funny Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple and James Salter's sensual tale of an ill-fated love affair, A Sport and A Pastime. Where'd You Go Bernadette is the story of the anxious, agoraphobic and brilliant architect Bernadette Fox, her precocious daughter Bee and tech star husband Elgie. On the eve of a family trip to Antarctica, Bernadette vanishes and her daughter Bee sets out on a mission to find her mother. Written by Mad About You and Arrested Development screenwriter, Maria Semple, Where'd You Go Bernadette is a light, funny and addictive read.Released in the late 1960s, James Salter's erotic masterpiece, A Sport and A Pastime is set against the backdrop of various French country towns and tracks a doomed, but passionate love affair.Help create the ultimate Australian reading list - 10 Aussie Books to Read Before You Die.
