Pete didn’t manage to Skype in, but did send a pre-prepared doodle for us to use.
There were some good suggestions, but the winner was Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky, proving that repeated nominations can eventually work.
Other suggestions were:
The Shock of the Fall – Nathan Filer
Consolations of Philosophy/The Art of travel – Alain de Botton
The Magus – John Fowles
The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
A Suitable Boy – Vikram Seth
We’ve booked the ‘Churchill Room’ at Effra Social again for the next meeting on March 20th.
