Book 4: Steven Millhauser’s ‘Edwin Mullhouse’
This week, Football Book Club will be reading Steven Millhauser’s Edwin Mullhouse: The Life and Death of an American Writer 1943-1954 by Jeffrey Cartwright and talking about Lawrence Wright’s Going Clear — and the sadness of life without the NFL.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Millhausuer’s debut novel operates as a biography of the late Mullhouse — the fictional and precocious novelist died at the young age of 11 — as written by his best friend, Jeffrey Cartwright.
Adam nominated this title for Football Book Club because: “This is yet another book that I’ve wanted to read for years — and one my pal Chandler insists I will love. I feel like reading it for FBC could be the beginning of a long and unhealthy Millhauser binge.”
