Edith’s Diary

It was a nice change to meet at Veg Bar, though a little more difficult to have a discussion as it was a bit noisier. Welcome to all the new faces, hope to see you again.¬†We’ll be back in the Churchill Room at Effra Social for the next meeting.

We had a wide-ranging talk about Orlando, covering gender, class, time, literature and some other things too.

After a very close vote our book for next time is Edith’s Diary by Patricia Highsmith, and we’re meeting on 12th May from about 7.30.

Other books pitched were:
Half of a Yellow Sun – Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie
Wake – Anna Hope
Spill Simmer Falter Wither – Sara Baume
H is for Hawk – Helen McDonald


New year resolutions

Hi everyone,
apologies for the lack of updates, the blog moderator (Pete) has been off and about, but is now back and catching up with the backlog of ‘is the book group still running?’ (yes! yay!) type emails.

Thanks to Simon for organising the Christmas / new year stuff – report from last time / meeting details for next time are:

A Sense of an Ending was a popular choice, as evidenced by the number of people who chose to brave the winds and the rain to make the first meeting of 2012! The next meeting will be on Thursday the 26th of January, when we’ll be discussing The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith.

The other nominations were Waterline by Ross Raisin, And The Land Lay Still by James Robertson, The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt and The Gathering by Anne Enright.

As always we’re meeting in Mango Landin, from about 7.30pm onwards. New members are always welcome!
