Discuss 'death and the penguin'

Here's what amazon has to say:

Viktor is an aspiring writer with only Misha, his pet penguin, for company. Although he would prefer to write short stories, he earns a living composing obituaries for a newspaper. He longs to see his work published, yet the subjects of his obituaries continue to cling to life. But when he opens the newspaper to see his work in print for the first time, his pride swiftly turns to terror. He and Misha have been drawn into a trap from which there appears to be no escape.

Location will be posted closer to the time, so please feel free to make suggestions!

A £1 fee will be charged for this meetup to help keep our book club going.

      Hi Anna, no need to skip the meetup. Having read the book is not a requirement to attend. Would still be great to see you!
