Here are the selections for July through December:

July 4: Ernest Hemingway, “A Farewell to Arms”

Drawing upon autobiographical experiences from the Italian campaign of the First World War, Hemingway draws the reader into the world of an American expat who serves as an ambulance driver, suffers wounds, and falls in love with his English nurse. This 1929 novel established its author as a literary titan, whose terse style of prose has become a model for countless imitators, and it arguably remains his best loved work.

Aug. 1: Samantha Irby, “Wow, No Thank You: Essays”

And now for something completely different! This 2020 collection of personal essays from Irby—her third—makes for the perfect antidote to one helluva tough year. Her laugh-out-loud, irreverent style and treasure trove of pop cultural references make easily relatable a series of uncomfortable confessions on ageing, marriage, and living in the Midwest.

Sep. 5: Don DeLlilo, “Underworld”

Regarded as DeLillo’s masterpiece, this 1997 novel centers on the underworld of waste management in New York City but weaves in numerous subplots touching upon baseball, the mafia, and nuclear proliferation. This hallmark of postmodern literature places DeLillo in the company of the most esteemed writers of his generation—Toni Morrison, Philip Roth, Cormac McCarthy, and Thomas Pynchon. (Brace yourself and plan early for this 827-page tome.)

Oct. 3: Hanif Abdurraqib, “A Little Devil in America”

As Columbus’s own, Abdurraqib is a poet, essayist, and cultural critic. His most recent collection of musings, from 2021, ponders the subject of unsung black heroes in the arts, culture, and politics and pulls the reader through time and space, from mid-century Paris to his own cramped living room. “A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance” has already been widely celebrated for its razor-sharp writing and joyous insight.

Nov. 7: Stephen Graham Jones, “The Only Good Indians”

For our annual Halloween treat, Jones’s 2020 novel makes for a disturbing revenge thriller. This horror story follows four friends, Blackfeet Indians who go on an elk hunting trip on land reserved for tribe elders. What follows the hunt mixes violent gore with supernatural haunting and amounts to a narrative theme exploring the guilt over breaking away from tradition, while covering such topics as marriage with whites, sports, drinking, and life on the reservation.

Dec. 5: Joyce Carol Oates, “Them”

The extremely prolific Oates has regarded this 1969 novel as among her most memorable. “Them” boldly explores the ambitions, letdowns, violence, language, insanity, anger, death, rioting, crime—what have you—of three downtrodden characters trying to achieve the American dream in mid-century Detroit and nearby Dearborn. Not for the faint-hearted, this is a book known for delivering crushing and unpredictable blows.

American Voices Book Club is a way for new and old friends and book lovers to get together to discuss some of the great works of American literature, both fiction and non-fiction, to promote a better understanding of the variety of American experiences and identities. Also, let's have fun doing it.
