For Two Thousand Years

Last night’s meeting was as packed as the lightbulbs in Omusa. We chatted about creeping gentrification, parks as pretty as tennis courts and how much 1 million won in loose change is worth.

we read One Hundred Shadows

I even got quizzed on my caligraphy

Runners up included Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore, As I lay Dying by William Faulkner, Trainspotting by Irevine Welsh, The Argonaughts by Maggie Nelson and Just Kids by Patti Smith.

One Hundred Shadows

Happy new year! we had a packed book group where we chatted about nuclear winters, swingtime, gieger counters and memories. I think we managed to outnumber more or less everyone else in the Effra Social. We also recorded at least part of the meeting for the upcoming Brixton Book Group podcast (watch this space).

Swing Time in Chernobyl
