The End of Vandalism was a popular choice. It seems everyone enjoyed the understated descriptions of just one thing happening after another.
The book for next time is topical and non-fiction, Human Cargo by Caroline Moorehead, and we’re meeting on 17th September. The author is going to come along to discuss the book with us too, so come armed with questions! **Please note this is a change from the original date of 10/9 as the author wasn’t around that week, so we are now meeting on 17/9**
Other suggestions were:
Esperanza Street – Niyati Keni
Hangover Square – Patrick Hamilton
A Long and Fatal Love Chase – Louisa May Alcott
Rough Crossings – Simon Schama
Wide Sargasso Sea – Jean Rhys
If On a Winters Night a Traveller – Italo Calvino
We’ll be at Effra Social from about 7.30. See you then!
