“Rich Boy” author Sharon Pomerantz will be participating via Skype at Congregation Gesher Shalom’s May Book Club meeting on Wednesday, May 9, in Fort Lee, beginning at 8:15 p.m.
All are welcome to join the discussion of the award-winning novel, chosen by Entertainment Weekly as one of the Ten Best Novels of 2010 and by Booklist as one of the Ten Best First Novels of the same year.
Pomerantz also won the National Foundation for Jewish Culture’s Goldberg Prize for Debut Fiction, a National Jewish Book Award.
Ten years in the making, “Rich Boy” is described as “a sweeping novel of class, sexual rebellion, money and love.”
“A tapestry that interweaves the lives of poor and middle class, middle class and supremely wealthy, ‘Rich Boy’ shows us four decades in an American century through the eyes of one ceaseless dreamer,” says her website, www.sharonpomerantz.com.
“It’s a book that looks fearlessly at both our desire to remake ourselves, and the price we pay for the privilege.”
