It was a big group in the back room to start the New Year off. We discussed both The Book of Strange New Things and A Month in the Country. I think it’s fair to say we generally thought A Month in the Country was the better book, but we had plenty to say about both.
The book for next time is Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, and what better time to read about Ice Giants?
Other suggestions were: The Epic of Gilgamesh, Exit West – Mohsin Hamid, How to be Both – Ali Smith, Instead of a Letter – Dianne Athill, A Fraction of the Whole – Steve Toltz
We’ll be meeting on Feb 21st at Effra Social – I’ll check on the booking, but we should be either in the Churchill Room or the restaurant out the back depending what else is going on that night.
