Picaresque & Caper novels & Real Rascals

 

The adventures of a rough and dishonest but appealing hero."a rowdy, picaresque "guys being guys" or plucky outrageous women and girls- and lovable con artists. The novels-- and memoirs or biographies--of folks who like Huck Finn, "lit out for the territory" tap into our desire to escape. Or do they?

 

Bring along a brownbag lunch and a book on the theme.  A selection is on display, or you may bring another favorite to discuss.
