Book Club Night: Underground Fugue
Set against the tube bombings in London in 2005, Underground Fugue interweaves the stories of four people dislocated by shock waves of personal loss, political violence, and betrayal. Esther has fled New York for London to care for her dying mother, Ionia. Their lives become entwined with their next-door neighbors, Javad – an Iranian neuroscientist – and his college-aged son, Amir. With both nuanced clarity and breathtaking grandeur, Underground Fugue is an elegant and suspenseful story.
