Book 3: Lawrence Wright’s ‘Going Clear’
This week, Football Book Club will be reading Lawrence Wright’s Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief and talking about Brain Fever by Kimiko Hahn — our selection from last week — and life without the NFL.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Wright’s Going Clear promises to be reveal tons of super creepy details about the Church of Scientology, was a National Book Award and a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist, and has been turned into a documentary by HBO.
Adam nominated this title for Football Book Club because: “When this book came out, everyone I knew was reading it and was absolutely shocked by it. I never got a around to reading it, but am now prepared to be shocked.”
