Book Club Discussion: The Assistants

Welcome to the Book Club discussion for The Assistants by Camille Perri. Below is a list of discussion questions to get the conversation started. We are excited to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. Feel free to answer all the questions, or pick and choose a few questions to discuss!

  • Why do you think Tina is still assistant at thirty years old? Is she a victim of societal structure, or is she stuck where she is because of her personality and choices?
  • How do you feel constrained (or empowered) by your own economic status or gender?
  • What role does friendship play in this story? Why do you think Tina and Emily become so close even though they’re seemingly so different?
  • How important do you think setting is to this novel? Would Tina’s predicament have been the same or different if she lived someplace else?

Questions from publisher.
