Creecy Book Club Discussion — The Leisure Seeker

July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian

Ella and John Robina, eightysomethings from a Detroit suburb, take off to Disneyland, via Route 66, in their RV against the will of their family and doctors. Ella has refused further treatment for cancer and John’s Alzheimer’s is four years advanced. Ella navigates and narrates their trip and their lives while John, who veers from sentience to senility and rage to tenderness, drives. Her narration is matter-of-fact, but laced with snarky one-liners about the reality of a person with Alzheimer’s disease.
