As I've discussed before, we know now that squatters are people in the real world, and we really didn't get that in 1996.
Next up: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann. I have read this book already, and I really liked it. The premise is that the author takes a day on which a crazy but forgotten event occurred in New York City, and adds other characters. He then shows the reader other things that could have happened in the City that day that were significant to the characters, but likely would have been overshadowed in the news by a wild stunt. I think it worked really well, and I'm anxious to know what the other book clubbers thought of it.
