When We Were Orphans

A big group round a very big table last week. Welcome to the new people!

We shouted across our opinions on The Elegance of the Hedgehog – it mostly seemed to go down fairly well though there was a mix of views and a bit of a split between people who preferred the first half and people who preferred the second half.

We had some good suggestions again, and the winner was When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro.
We’ll be meeting to discuss this at Mango Landin on Brixton Water Lane from around 7.30 or 8 on 3rd March.

Runners up were:
The Siege – Ismail Kadare
Things Fall Apart – Chinua Achebe
Anna Karenin – Tolstoy
Leviathan – Philip Hoare
The Northern Clemency – Philip Hensher
Sophie’s World – Jostein Gaarder

See you on 3rd March!
