All of the true things that I am about to tell you are shameless lies
Last night we discussed war and the end of the world in Cat’s Cradle and 1950’s attitudes towards homosexuality in the Chrysalids. Although everyone seemed to enjoy both books, Kurt Vonnegurt just managed to push John Wyndham into second place as Brixton Book Group’s favourite pre/post apocalyptic writer.
The book for next time is the Dirty Havana Trilogy by Pedro Juan Gutierrez (Author), and Natasha Wimmer (Translator).
Runners up were:
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Less than Zero by Brett Easton Ellis
The Night Watch by Sarah Walters
Unless by Carol Shields
and Catch 22 by Joseph Heller.
Next meeting: Wednesday 20th of June in the Trinity Arms
