The group meet at the Dog and Duck pub at 8:00pm. Come and join us for a drink and a discussion of this month’s chosen book. The book for September is ‘ A Suitable Boy’ by Vikram Seth. Newcomers are always welcome.
Vikram Seth’s novel is, at its core, a love story: the tale of Lata – and her mother’s – attempts to find her a suitable husband, through love or through exacting maternal appraisal. At the same time, it is the story of India, newly independent and struggling through a time of crisis as a sixth of the world’s population faces its first great general election and the chance to map its own destiny.
