genteXt Book Group: Books, Bars and Beers March Mystery

  • March 31, 2008 · 8:00 PM
  • Bull McCabe's

The selection is Christine Falls by Benjamin Beck. This debut mystery by Booker prize winner John Banville (Black is a pseudonym) stares the widowed and alcoholic Dublin coroner Quirke who investigates the death of Christine Falls and the disappearance of her newborn. With Black's characteristically lyrical writing, Christine Falls reaches down into the history of Quirke's family and up to the height of Catholic power in Ireland. This is the first in a projected series--and you will want to read them all.

    This was the best discussion we've had yet - partly because the location was good (so we could all talk and hear) and partly because everybody seemed interested in actually talking about the book. I really enjoyed it!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
