The Ladies Book Club at Old Palm has eclectic tastes. The well-read ladies have discussed everything from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic “The Great Gatsby” to journalist Ariel Saber’s thought-provoking “My Father’s Paradise: A Son’s Search for His Jewish Past in Kurdish Iraq.” Now, the ladies are turning their attention to Jonathan Tropper’s sixth novel, “One Last Thing Before I Go.” It’s all about a sad sack named Drew Silver, who “has been an idiot for so long that sometimes he forgets what an idiot he is.” The 44-year-old Silver has health problems, a pregnant teenager daughter, an ex-wife whom he still loves, and all sorts of quirks that make him feel hopelessly lost. There’s plenty to probe in this new novel and Tropper’s other work, and the ladies in the book club are sure to keep the conversation lively during their next meeting in the Ladies Lounge in Old Palm’s Club.
