You could do something terrible with your life [You are the President of the United States]
We had a long long dicussion about toxic masculinity, Gazza on a bike, cross-dressing, the patriarchy and probably a lot of other things as well as we discussed the excellent double bill of The Descent of Man and that book about Raoul Moat.
Book for next time is the Plot against America by Philip Roth, a fictional account of when a populist right wing president is elected – and we’re meeting on the 21st of June from 7.30 in the Effra Social as usual.
Runners up included Waterland, Swearing is F*cking good for you, Homefire, The Summer Book, Middlesex, and Miss Ex-Yugoslavia.
Plus we really need to discuss the House of Leaves, which is turning into a very long read.
