This month's thought-provoking fiction selection is The Razor's Edge by W. Somerset Maugham. As of January 24, we have three interlibrary loan copies remaining which may be borrowed for a $2.00 fee.

Larry Darrell is a young American in search of the absolute. The progress of this spiritual odyssey involves him with some of Maugham's most brillant characters - his fiancee Isabel, whose choice between love and wealth have lifelong repercussions, and Elliot Templeton, her uncle, a classic expatriate American snob. The most ambitious of Maugham's novels, this is also one in which Maugham himself plays a considerable part as he wanders in and out of the story, to observe his characters struggling with their fates.

The library offers a hybrid approach to book club hosting. Participants have three options:
1. 12 people can attend in person, or
2. 12 people can attend via Zoom, or
3. Up to 8 people attend in person while others attend via Zoom. Audio and video are enabled in both directions.
