Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh‘s Virtual Book Club will meet to discuss The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. In this dizzying literary puzzle, the hapless protagonist is doomed to relive the same day over and over unless he can solve a murder at a masquerade ball. The narrator wakes up in a forest outside Blackheath House, “a sprawling Georgian manor house,” not knowing who or where he is – or why he’s screaming the name Anna. Turton’s debut is a brainy, action-filled sendup of the classic mystery.
Carnegie Library’s Virtual Book Club: The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle will be held twice on Monday, December 14:
