Staff English Book Club: “Still Life with Woodpecker” By: Tom Robbins


The Staff English Book Club, hosted by Matthew Jellick, will enter it’s seventh(!) semester this Fall, reading Still Life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins. Described as a post-modern fairy tale, major themes include “metaphysical outlawism”, with the Moon playing a central role, as it is apt to do.

The novel continuously addresses the question of “how to make love stay” and throughout our reading in the Staff English Book Club, we can’t wait to find out!
