Lets Get This Party Started!

So, to kick off the blog, we're going to be doing a "mini-book group" discussion, and straight off of the Penguin Group's website, here is the first question:

At the beginning of the story, Delaney accidentally hits Cándido with his car. "For a long moment, they stood there, examining each other, unwitting perpetrator and unwitting victim." How does this encounter set the tone for the events that follow? Does it come full circle in the final scene?

Fort Collins Reads is passing out more than 100 copies of its 2009 book choice "Tortilla Curtain" by T.C. Boyle. If you come across a copy with our message on the inside cover, read the book, post your comments on this blog, add your name to the list, then pass the book to someone else. Share the Book, Share the Discussion! Boyle will speak Nov. 8 at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins.
