Perspectives Book Group - How to Be Good


Presenter: Ann McClellan

As part of New Hampshire Humanities' Perspectives Book Groups, we're reading "How to Be Good," by Nick Hornby. The book is a story of Katie Carr, a doctor who is disillusioned with both marriage and parenthood. Her husband has a rather snide streak, but when he undergoes a personality change, she learns to long for her old husband. 

London GP Katie Carr always thought she was a good person. With her husband David making a living as 'The Angriest Man in Holloway,' she figured she could put up with anything. Until, that is, David meets DJ Goodnews and becomes a good person too. A far-too-good person who starts committing crimes of charity like taking in the homeless and giving their kids' toys away. Suddenly Katie's feeling very bad about herself, and thinking that if charity begins at home, then maybe it's time to move. . .
