The Naked Civil Servant
We had a packed online vitual meeting where we chatted about This is Memorial Device, unusual chapter titles and playlists. It was a bit like celebrity squares but with more alchohol.
Book for next time is the Naked Civil Servant by Quentin Crisp – we will be meeting virtually on the 16th of April from 7.30 ish. At time of writing Hive are no longer taking orders – you can try ordering the book from your local bookshop (Bookseller crow can order things in) – given the strain on the delivery system, if you’re unable to get a copy everyone is welcome to join us to chat about what we’re all reading!
Zoom details are as follows:
