About the event
Our October Book Club will be centred around Andrea Lawlor’s ‘Paul Takes The Form Of A Mortal Girl’, first published in 2017.
We suggest that everyone who would like to join our Book Club on this date acquires the book (either electronic or physical, whichever you prefer), and comes prepared to talk about it. Even if you started reading but didn’t finish, you are still welcome to join, but please be aware that discussions can cover all aspects of the book, including the ending.
‘Paul Takes The Form Of A Mortal Girl’ Book description:
It’s 1993 and Paul Polydoris tends bar at the only gay club in a university town thrumming with politics and partying. He studies queer theory, has a dyke best friend, makes zines, and is a flâneur with a rich dating life. But Paul’s also got a secret: he’s a shapeshifter. Oscillating wildly from Riot Grrrl to leather cub, Women’s Studies major to trade, Paul transforms his body at will in a series of adventures that take him from Iowa City to Boystown to Provincetown and finally to San Francisco—a journey through the deep queer archives of struggle and pleasure.
