CommUnity Book Club--The Life We Bury
This month's CommUnity Book Club selection is Allen Esken's suspenseful and award-winning debut novel. College student, Joe Talbert, interviews care home resident and Vietnam veteran, Carl Iverson, for a class writing assignment. He soon learns that Carl has been in jail and is paroled to the nursing home because his health is rapidly declining and he has been given a short amount of time to live. As Joe's interviews continue, he has a harder and harder time reconciling Carl's alleged violent past with the heroic veteran he is getting to know, and seeks to uncover the real truth about Carl's past before it's too late.
