Today A Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket: Stories by Hilma Wolitzer

This collection is bookended on one end by the title tale, first published in 1966, and on the other by a powerful new story written in 2020.  More than half the stories concern a middle-class New York couple named Howard and Paulette; Wolitzer’s fiction delves into the vicissitudes of love and marriage with wisdom and warmth. Wolitzer clearly believes there are no ordinary people – everyone is extraordinary – and the book is filled with interesting, if not appealing, characters.

Book Club gathers once a month to discuss literature (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or plays) written by a Jewish author or with a theme of Jewish interest. Meetings are self-moderated and led by different members each month. The group nominates and selects their reading material. Every meeting provides spirited conversation and a chance to learn in a stimulating environment.
