Brixton Book Group: November 2nd meeting
Well it was lovely to see all of you again – the book we chose was:
Last Exit to Brooklyn by Hubert Selby
“The story follows a number of tranvestites, criminals and prostitutes who live on the edge of existence but yearn for more meaning.”
The runners up were:
Norwegian Wood – Haruki Murakami
The Closed Circle – Jonathan Coe
Metroland – Julian Barnes
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter – Carson Macullers (such a beautiful title)
Being Jordan – Katie Price
My Name is Red – Orhan Pamuk
Next meeting is on Wednesday 23rd of November in the Queen
Forgot a key point in my spirited defence of Tooting last night. Not only does it have my favourite Indian restaurant (http://travel.guardian.co.uk/restaurants/story/0,13739,1002856,00.html) and an awesome car boot sale (http://www.londonfreelist.com/details.asp?id=10051 – well it’s nearly in Tooting). It’s also home to the charity shop where I found the Family Fortunes board game complete with eh-errr buzzer. Come on, what more could you want?
Anyway, on to more important matters, I think a book club Christmas meal is definitely in order – let’s do it!
