My year of rest and relaxation
Well we had a great chat about being trapped in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike. Piranesi was generally well recived and enjoyed, crisp packets and all.
Book for next time is My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh and we’re meeting on Zoom on the 8th of July.
Runners up included: Who was changed and who was dead by Barbara Comyns, Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell, Brixton Rock by Alex Wheatle, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Absolute Pandemonium by Brian Blessed, Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro, and The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.
Don’t forget the long read which is all the Ali Smith seasonal books – meeting date TBC, but at some time in late summer.
