Description - I'll Take You There by Wally Lamb
Behind every good man is a great woman - or three
A New York Times bestseller- the kaleidoscopic new novel from Wally Lamb, author of She's Come Undone.
Every Monday, sixty-year-old Felix Funicello sets up a new film for his weekly club at an old-fashioned cinema. But one night, he is confronted by an unanticipated guest- the ghost of Lois Weber.
Once a trailblazing director from the silent film era, Lois invites Felix to watch a new feature on the big screen - scenes from his past.
As these magical movies play before him, Felix begins to understand how a trio of unforgettable women have shaped his history.
An evocative and kaleidoscopic convergence of Hollywood, feminism and family secrets, I'll Take You There is a radiant homage to a single life and to the resiliency, strength and power of women.
