Vinegar Girl – Anne Tyler

Vinegar Girl  by Anne Tyler .

Vinegar Girl

Come and celebrate Valentine’s Day and all things romantic at the Elanora Library Open book club in February.

We will be meeting at 10.30 on Thursday the 23rd to discuss Vinegar Girl  by Anne Tyler, part of the Hogarth series of Shakespeare tales retold by modern authors.

Pulitzer prize winning author  Tyler excels at domestic fiction and making the ordinary extraordinary, so she was the obvious choice for a modern retelling of  Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Her  witty  take on one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies is set  in contemporary Baltimore. The shrew is Kate, a modern feminist  preschool teacher and her unlikely romantic lead  is Pyotr, her scientist father’s Russian lab assistant. Girl meets boy, girl does not like or need boy …. and the rest, as they say, is history!

If you enjoy this  hilarious and heartwarming tale you may enjoy the others in the Hogarth  series.
