At each meeting we discuss a book that has been suggested by a member of the group. We choose, in turn, from a wide range of literature in English, including translations.
Our books, on the whole, are likely to be recent, and possibly on prize lists, but there is no reason not to delve into the past for classics and old favourites. They will usually be fiction, but not necessarily.
In the recent past, for example, we have read A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart, Golden Hill by Francis Spufford, Motherwell by Deborah Orr, and English Passengers by Matthew Kneale.
