From Austen to Zola, by way of PG Wodehouse, George Orwell, Nancy Mitford, Bram Stoker, Ian Fleming, Roald Dahl, Daniel Defoe, John Updike, Muriel Spark, Angela Carter and PD James...anything you flipping well like!

We are a group which celebrates classic fiction, modern writers, poetry and plays (but not self-published novels).

Discussions take place once a month (except August). Lots of talking, recommending, swapping books and being opinionated.

New members are always welcome!
