We had a pretty big group again for Demon Copperhead, with an interesting conversation on how it re-writes David Copperfield, whether there was enough or too much on the opioid crisis, and our views on happy endings.
The next book is Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu and we’ll be meeting on 11th May at Effra Social. We usually meet from 7.30 and start the discussion from about 7.45-8ish.
Other pitches were:
Educated – Tara Westover
Three Spiders Fucking – Robin Purves
Ficciones – Jorges Luis Borges
The Peripheral – William Gibson
The High House – Jessie Greengrass
The Invention of Morel – Adolpho Bioy Casares
Waterland – Graham Swift
The City and the City – China Mieville
Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow – Gabrielle Zevin
The Yiddish Policeman’s Union – Michael Chabon
See you there!
