Books in the Brewery Subiaco – July: Thanks For Having Me by Emma Darragh

July 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Books in the Brewery is a free casual book club. In July we discuss Thanks For Having Me by Emma Darragh

Book of the Month: Thanks For Having Me by Emma Darragh

Books in the Brewery is a free casual event combining great beer with good chat and an Aussie novel. Readers and drinkers are invited to take part in a guided conversation with our resident host.

Subiaco meetings will be held at 6pm on the second Wednesday of the month.

Adult readers of all experience are invited to think and talk about books in a safe and encouraging space. Expect to be discussing books from both award-winning Australian authors and new voices from around the country.

About the book: Interwoven stories about three generations of women in one family.

Mary Anne is painfully aware that she’s not a good wife and not a good mother, and is slowly realising that she no longer wants to play either of those roles. One morning, she walks out of the family home in Wollongong, leaving her husband and teenage daughters behind. Wounded by her mother’s abandonment, adolescent Vivian searches for meaning everywhere: true crime, boys’ bedrooms, Dolly magazine, a six-pack of beer. But when Vivian grows up and finds herself unhappily married and miserable in motherhood, she too sees no choice but to start over. Her daughter Evie is left reeling, and wonders what she could have done to make her mother stay.

Emma Darragh’s unflinching, tender and darkly funny debut explores what we give to our families and what we take from them—whether we mean to or not. The stories in Thanks for Having Me are like a shoebox full of old photos: they aren’t in chronological order and few are labelled. Looking at a family this way reveals things we don’t see when these moments are neatly organised. Except that within these pages are a few moments you wouldn’t want to hold up to the light.
