May 2014 Book Club Meeting

Hi Ladies

As we head into winter (brrrr) I have a nice surprise. Once again Scribe Publishers in Brunswick have been generous enough to give us 30 copies of a yet unreleased book.

If you would like a copy you must attend the April meeting to pick it up, and remember that it is important that you can make the May book club, if you cant please allow someone who can attend to take a copy.

Right, so the book is

A Mad and Wonderful Thing by Mark Mulholland

I read it and loved it.

In this passionate and heart-wrenching debut novel by Irish writer Mark Mulholland, we meet Johnny Donnelly — an intense young man who is in love with books, with his country, and with the beautiful Cora Flannery. But in his dark and secret other life he shoots British soldiers: he is an IRA sniper.

How can this be? As his two worlds inevitably move towards a dramatic collision, Johnny takes us on a journey through the history, legends, and landscapes of his beloved Ireland. In the end, Johnny has to make sense of his inheritance and his life, and he does so in a riveting, redemptive, and unforgettable climax.

6.30 upstairs at The Duke of Kent 293 Latrobe St Melbourne

See you there
