Great Group Reads: Perfection
Posted by: admin

perfection_julie_metz_smallPerfection: A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal by Julie Metz is one of the nine titles selected by the Women’s National Book Association Reading Group Month committee as “Great Group Reads” for 2009.

It’s a powerful memoir, unusually fiction-sounding given the nature of Metz’s story. (Husband dies, she then discovers that he was leading a double life and goes in search of the woman he was leading it with, grief turns to fury.) Interviews with Metz in The New York Times and Guardian offer some outsider perspectives that might help readers decide what they think of Metz’s very public processing of her personal tragedy.
