The Angel of History
By Rabih Alameddine
The Angel of History tells the story of Jacob, a gay, Yemeni-born poet living in San Francisco, as he waits to check into a mental health facility sometime in the present day. The novel is framed around the single night he spends in the waiting room.
Tips for Obtaining Books:
If you do not wish to purchase the book of the month, first--check our local library! Gail Borden Public Library has many of the books we cover. If there are no copies available in stock, you can either:
1) Check the Hoopla app! It is free to use if you have a library card with Gail Borden, and features many free audio books and ebooks. Or
2) Submit a material request form from Gail Borden! Make sure you mention that it's for a Book Club in the "Additional Information" field, so they get the materials asap! You can submit a material request form here.
