Listen Up: The Second #ReadingThings Book Club Meeting is Now In Session!
On the most recent ep of A Few Things with Claire and Erica, we’re talking all about The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing—because #ReadingThings book club, round two. And guess who was kind enough (way, way too kind, TBH) to join us? The author Mira Jacob herself.
EPISODE 42 RECAP
On the book that made us both laugh and cry...with Mira Jacob, author of The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing!
- Read this Buzzfeed post about Mira’s son’s obsession with Michael Jackson that’s a preview of her next book, a graphic novel called Good Talk: Conversations I Am Still Confused About.
- Our thoughts on casting: Priyanka Chopra as Dimple; Hannah Simone, Noreen DeWulf, or maybe even Mindy Kaling as Amina; Archie Panjabi as Sanji (or maybe Bala?); Rob Pattinson as Jamie.
- Ideas for further reading: Being Mortal: Medicine and What Happens at the End of Life by Atul Gawande; The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz; The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan; The Absolutely True Story of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie; Blue Boy by Rakesh Satyal; Fun Home by Alison Bechdel; This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper; The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy; Behind the Scenes at The Museum by Kate Atkinson; On Beauty by Zadie Smith.
- Mira’s mom would kick her outta the fam for saying any Indian restaurant is the best, but in NYC, Jackson Diner is a safe bet.
