His Bloody Project
We had a smaller group tucked away in the back room of the Effra to discuss Kraken. Although it was a fun read with lots of inventive ideas the consensus was that it was a bit long, and the plot a bit over complicated. With Pete absent, we had to draft in interim doodle doodlers.
The next book is His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet, and we’re meeting on Thurs 16th May from about 7.30. We’ll be in the back room/former restaurant/accordion room of the Effra Social again.
Runners up were:
- The Year I Didn’t Eat – Samuel Pollen
- How to be Both – Ali Smith
- Folk – Zoe Gilbert
- The Dud Avocado – Elaine Dundy
- The Book of Human Skin – Michelle Lovric
It has been brought to my attention this clashes with the second Eurovision heat, for which I can only apologise, but hope to see you then.
