In our first meeting of the new year, we will discuss The Betrayers by David Bezmozgis. This novel gives us one momentous day in the life of Baruch Kotler, a disgraced Israeli politician. When he refuses to back down from a contrary but principled stand regarding the West Bank settlements, his political opponents expose his affair with a mistress decades his junior. He and the fierce young Leora flee the scandal for Yalta, where, in an unexpected turn of events, he comes face-to-face with the former friend who denounced him to the KGB almost 40 years earlier.
If you are interested in participating in focused discussion, lively debate, and some intellectual conversation, please join us - YOU WILL BE VERY GLAD THAT YOU DID!
