We had a lively meeting talking about the importance of being nice to the artificial life form you’ve created after months of work and not going off to the pub and leaving him. Although whoever / whatever is in charge of the universe seems to have really dropped the ball in 2016 (Greetings if you’re reading this in the future, there are plenty of book suggestions to keep you entertained in the bunker while president Trump’s missiles fly overhead).
Book for next time is Quiet – the power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking by Susan Cain.
Runners up include A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, Hadj Murat by Leo Tolstoy, The End of the World News by Anthony Burgess, The Sellout by Paul Beatty, For Two Thousand Years by Mikhail Sebastian and The Great Railway Bazaar by Paul Theroux.
Meeting next time is the 16th of November from 7.30ish in the Effra Social.
