Fiction Read - The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng

  • This location is shown only to members

Thanks Phil for hosting last month's interesting discussion. Our next read was nominated by Caroline and Emma's nomination of Instructions For A Heatwave by Maggie O'Farrell, came 2nd in the vote. 

If you have an idea for a nomination, we look forward to hearing at the next meet up. Structured questions for your nomination are optional, to help guide the discussion. As you'll notice - once the discussion gets underway, questions usually evolve. 

The Garden of evening mists : Set during the Japanese occupation, The Garden of Evening Mists follows young law graduate, Yun Ling Teoh, as she seeks solace among the plantations of the Cameron Highlands. Here she discovers Yugiri, the only Japanese garden in Malaya, and its owner and creator, the secretive Aritomo. Aritomo agrees to accept Yun Ling as his apprentice “until the monsoon” so that she can design a garden in memorial to her sister. But over time the jungle starts to reveal secrets of its own…

      Hi Louise. You'll normally find a group of us in the seating area to the left of the bar. Look out for people with copies of the book. Don't put yourself under too much pressure to finish the book. If you've read enough to form an opinion you'll be fine

    Sorry I didn't get there last night. Work again. I definitely can't make the next one as I'm in Manchester. But I have read the book and really enjoyed it - good choice and I hope you all enjoy the book and the discussion.
