Book Club Members Look Forward to Discussing Nancy’s Divorce

LOS ANGELES, CA — Despite having a myriad of thoughts and opinions on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, members of the Glendale Book Club told reporters Wednesday that they were instead looking forward to discussing Nancy’s divorce.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love talking all things literature with my fellow ladies,” said club organizer Janet, noting that while their love of books brought them all together, nothing beats tantalizing gossip about extramarital affairs and the PTA. “When Nancy told us, we were shocked. But deep down, we were all excited that we’d have a juicy topic for many meetings to come.”

While meetings usually last two hours with only ten minutes dedicated to the assigned book, fellow members Rachel and Gloria were excited that Nancy’s divorce would be ripe with stimulating conversations, and claimed that the subject could even function as a book by itself.

“I don’t know how else to put it, but I’m really excited for our next get-together,” said Gloria, adding that the club hasn’t been this elated since they all read Fifty Shades of Grey. “Like, this is going to be great. I’m already looking up divorce-themed desserts to bring.”

Though everyone showed up excited for the anticipated six-hour discussion, they became disheartened at press time when Nancy announced that she made amends with her husband and called the divorce off.
