20-30 Somethings! Join us as we discuss The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie
Summary: A young couple on the brink of marriage–the charming Veblen and her fiancé Paul, a brilliant neurologist–find their engagement in danger of collapse. Along the way they weather everything from each other’s dysfunctional families, to the attentions of a seductive pharmaceutical heiress, to an intimate tête-à-tête with a very charismatic squirrel. Veblen (named after the iconoclastic economist Thorstein Veblen, who coined the term “conspicuous consumption”) is one of the most refreshing heroines in recent fiction.
