Bookclub No. 54 Lily King “Euphoria”

Date: 19th September 2017

Starting Time: 20:15


Euphoria! Our next read is based on the life and works of anthropologist Margret Mead, who in the 1930’s was one of the few female scientists doing field research and exploring the native tribes of New Guinea.

Nell, the fictional alter ego of Mead, not only enters the story with lots of ailments (lesions, gashes, ringworms), but is beaten about by always not quite belonging to one world or the other (the English countrymen being the stranger species).

An exciting life for sure and of course this story is also about love, yeah! When Nell and her husband are joined by a fellow scientist on their journey, a ménage-à-trois unfolds on the basis of – what’s the new word –sapiosexuality, wow!
