Event Details

The Gunn Memorial Library’s fiction book club will be reading Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane. Copies of the book are available for curbside pick up at the library.

Keane’s 2019 novel is a gorgeous and generous portrait of the daily intimacies of marriage and the power of forgiveness. Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie NYPD cops, are neighbors in the suburbs. What happens behind closed doors in both houses—the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.

In Mary Beth Keane’s extraordinary novel, a lifelong friendship and love blossoms between Kate Gleeson and Peter Stanhope, born six months apart. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next thirty years.
