iRead Book Club Meeting June 2

Posted on: Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 9:30:00 am

In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash. Join the iRead Book Club on Monday, June 2 at 6:00pm as we discuss Jean Shepherd's In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash.

In God We Trust, Shepherd's wildly witty reunion with his Indiana hometown, disproves the adage "You can never go back." Bending the ear of Flick, his childhood-buddy-turned-bartender, Shepherd recalls passionately his genuine Red Ryder BB gun, confesses adolescent failure in the arms of Junie Jo Prewitt, and relives a story of man against fish that not even Hemingway could rival. From pop art to the World's Fair, Shepherd's subjects speak with a universal irony and are deeply and unabashedly grounded in American Midwestern life, together rendering a wonderfully nostalgic impression of a more innocent era when life was good, fun was clean, and station wagons roamed the earth.*
