Short Book Book Club

All members of College are welcome to attend the next meeting of the Short Book Book Club.

The book for discussion will be Penelope Fitzgerald’s The Bookshop:

“Penelope Fitzgerald’s fiction is at its best when illuminating the lives of outsiders, outcasts, the misunderstood, the hopeful; the flotsam and jetsam often destined to be left behind. Nowhere is her keen eye for human frailty better exemplified than in the Booker Prize shortlisted novel, The Bookshop, a subtle blend of poignancy and humour, a masterclass in modern tragicomedy”. (Waterstone’s review)
