November First Book Club: Lucky’s by Andrew Pippos
Kill Your Darlings’ First Book Club pick for november is Andrew Pippos’ Lucky’s (Picador), an exuberant, magical Australian saga about migration, mystery, tragedy and love.
Lucky’s is a story of family.
A story about migration.
It is also about a man called Lucky.
His restaurant chain.
A fire that changed everything.
A New Yorker article which might save a career.
The mystery of a missing father.
An impostor who got the girl.
An unthinkable tragedy.
A roll of the dice.
And a story of love—lost, sought and won again (at last).
Stay tuned for features on our website and podcast throughout the month!
First Book Club will be back in 2021!
