Radio Bookclub: Perestroika In Paris – Jane Smiley

The February selection for the Radio Bookclub is Perestroika In Paris, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jane Smiley. The novel’s protagonist is a runaway racehorse who befriends a German shorthaired pointer. Together they live on the streets of Paris until they befriend a human boy, Etienne, and discover a new, otherworldly part of the city.

This edition of the Radio Bookclub with Jane Smiley was broadcast on KGNU at 9am on Thursday, February 25th.

The Radio Bookclub is a collaboration between KGNU and the Boulder Bookstore. Every month, Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer at the Boulder Bookstore, selects a book to inspire listeners to read along together. The author will then join us in-studio for a discussion that airs the fourth Thursday of every month at 9am.
