May is (almost) here and it’s time for a new book club book – Vinegar Girl, by anne Tyler. Set in Tyler’s beloved Baltimore, this book is a modern retelling of The Taming of the Shrew. It’s part of the Hogarth Shakespeare Series, in which authors such as Margaret Atwood,Anne Tyler, Jeanette Winterson, and others write modern re-tellings of Shakepeare’s plots.
In Vinegar Girl, Katherine lives with her eccentric scientist father. Her father has a Russian research assistant whose visa is about to expire. Dad wants Katherine to marry the assistant so that the assistant can stay in the country. Hilarity ensues.
