Next books

Hi. Just to confirm what we're doing next... "Open secrets" by Alice Munro, for anyone who fancies short stories. Sue H and Valerie are borrowing our copies of "The World's Wife" by Carol Ann Duffy to have a look at the poems. If someone sees one in there which they fancy, tell us which one it is and we can congregate on that one, like Sue did with "Little Red Cap". But both options are very optional. Anyone got a novel they think we might like to try? Do email me to suggest it.

Whilst writing, came across this quote on a past book of ours which struck me:

"A Month in the Country is like nothing else in post-war British fiction. It has no model, and has influenced no-one: it just occurs, wistful yet full of life, the strangest, and most memorable, novel to appear in my lifetime". Byron Rogers.
