    Suggestion for next book.

    I’m just wondering whether you’d like to read this as our next book? ‘The Mermaid of Black Conch’ by Monique Roffey. It was strongly recommended by a friend who said everyone in her book group had loved it. This book is the ‘Winner of the Costa Prize for Best Book and for Best Novel, Goldsmiths Prize shortlisted, shortlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize, shortlisted for the Novel section of the OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature, shortlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Prize, longlisted for the RSL Ondaatje Prize and longlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction’ It’s a bit more magical realism but hey ho maybe I can be converted.

    I’ve read another book by her which was very enjoyable.

Book club

This group is for people who like to read a book and discuss it with others. We will choose a book each month from titles suggested by members of the group. We will then return for an on-line discussion at a pre selected date which will be 6 weeks later. Important that we suggest books which are readily available, not too expensive, and not too long.

** Please note that this is a book discussion group. Business posts will not be accepted and members posting these will be removed from the group.
