Tonight at the bookstore, we will be celebrating our 100th Podcast of Breakfast at the Bookstore with Brad and Nick! (Okay, technically this will only be #99, but, you know, scheduling and so on.)
Anyway, we’ll be joined by friend of the podcast and legendary Seattle librarian, Nancy Pearl! Lucky Lou’s doughnuts and maple bars for all!

I know it’s huge book and December has a lot of obligations, but it is SO GOOD and so satisfying that no other book in 2016 can compete, and it reads much faster than you’d think. It may be my favorite book of the year.

WHY DOES THIS MAN HATE HIS WIFE?
A Spanish film director asks his young assistant what he would do if a lifelong friend were not as he had always believed him to be.
This question launches a plot of spying, lying, trickery, manipulation, eavesdropping and secret motives that stretch all the way back to the unspeakable crimes of the Spanish Civil War. The mystery centers around a secretly-witnessed scene of marital degradation. Something is profoundly wrong with the director’s marriage. What could Beatriz possibly have done to make her husband revile her so?
As young Juan pursues answers he’s lied and deceived to discover, a moral maze opens up before the reader who can only watch in guilty suspense as he makes his fateful choices. A funny, graceful, profoundly satisfying novel.
Come discuss the book with us!
