Book Discussion with Judy Levin

FATES AND FURIES by Lauren Groff explores the marriage of Lancelot, fated for success, and his wife Mathilde, filled with pain and fury, told from their two perspectives. Widely divergent perspectives that seem to describe two different marriages. A Greek tragedy,complete with chorus; an absorbing and complex story.
