In our prime......

Great meeting this week with lots of good discussion about 'On the road'. General consensus, Kerouac a bit of a misogynistic wanker but a very good writer. Lots to like, some stuff difficult to forgive.

Winner of the vote for next meeting is 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie' by Muriel Spark. We meet again on the 6 April.

It was a close call with the other suggestions, especially 'I'll go to bed at noon' by Gerard Woodward, now on it's third suggestion (it will get there one day!)
The others were:
Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Lolita by Vladamir Nabakov
The People's Train by Thomas Keneally

Just a short list this week!

Continuing to enjoy the Royal Oak so hope to see all there in three weeks, revel in the start of Springtime and avoid the April showers til then!

(ps. Couldn't resist this orange image although it's of the film poster and not the book cover. Potential confusion between Maggie Smith and Muriel Spark!!)
