Book Club Choice: Day for Night by Frederick Reiken

This month my Skype book club is reading Day for Night by Frederick Reiken. We will be discussing it on June 6! I haven't yet started it, but doesn't the description look great?

If you look hard enough into the history of anything, you will discover things that seem to be connected but are not. So claims a character in Frederick Reiken's wonderful, surprising novel, which seems in fact to be determined to prove just the opposite. How else to explain the threads that link a middle-aged woman on vacation in Florida with a rock and roll singer visiting her comatose brother in Utah, where he's been transported after a motorcycle injury in Israel, where he works with a man whose long-lost mother, in a retirement community in New Jersey, recognizes him in a televised report about an Israeli-Palestinian skirmish? And that's not the half of it.

In Day for Night, critically acclaimed writer Frederick Reiken spins an unlikely and yet utterly convincing story about people lost and found. They are all refugees from their own lives or history's cruelties, and yet they wind up linked to each other in compelling and unpredictable ways that will keep you guessing until the very end.
I'm hoping this will keep me entertained on the train ride home from New York (today!)

Sounds like a brain-teaser! I believe in this type of thing...people and things being connected in ways we can't even understand. I'll really look forward to your thoughts on this one!

I love this idea of everyone being connected in some way if you look hard enough. This sounds like one that will keep you entertained on the ride home.

Sounds like the theory of 6 degrees of separation. You can link anyone to anything.
