Remember me?

Hi all

Top marks to Pete for setting up the Brixton Book Group site! How much easier will that make things?

Just thought I’d apologise for my absence over the past few weeks. Basically my Dad died about a month ago, so it’s not been the easiest time for me. He’d been ill for a long time, so it was no great shock, but still not easy to cope with.

Anyway, am back in the throbbing metropolis that is London now and ready to rejoin the throng. Looking forward to hearing everyone’s views on Rules Of Attraction – perhaps we can have a discussion on the recent movie adaptation as well, if anyone saw it.

Looking forward to seeing y’all next time.


Brixton Book Group: Last Meeting

Hi everyone,
at the last meeting we were discussing Tender is the Night by F Scott Fitzgerald – if you missed it you can download it for free from the University of Adelade.

The book for next time is:
*The Rules of Attraction by Bret Easton Ellis

The runners up were:
Thinks – David Lodge
The Caucasian Chalk Circle – Bertolt Brecht (a play!)
The Little Demon – Fyodor Sologub
Luna Park – Bret Easton Ellis
Kafka on the Shore – Haruki Murakami

*Opinion on the Rules of Attraction were a bit split – if anyone wants to read Thinks instead – or act out part of The Caucasian Chalk Circle leave a comment on the bottom of this post.

Next meeting:
Wednesday 2nd November at the Queen pub, Brixton

Optional mission(s)

  • Use a compliment from Tender is the night in normal conversation
  • Write a 30 second stream of consciousness – everything that pops into your head!
  • Highlight one sentance from the chosen book
