July 16, 7 p.m., "The Piano Tuner" by Daniel Mason

Time for another meet-up!!! Here is the information on the book for July. See you there!


Overview

In 1886 a shy, middle-aged piano tuner named Edgar Drake receives an unusual commission from the British War Office: to travel to the remote jungles of northeast Burma and there repair a rare piano belonging to an eccentric army surgeon who has proven mysteriously indispensable to the imperial design. From this irresistible beginning, The Piano Tuner launches its protagonist into a world of seductive loveliness and nightmarish intrigue. And as he follows Drake’s journey, Mason dazzles readers with his erudition, moves them with his vibrantly rendered characters, and enmeshes them in the unbreakable spell of his storytelling

    I just researched your dates and found that they are always held on Tuesdays. Oh well, I hope Beautiful Ruins is a good book-it looks like it.. I will have to bow out, as I always work on Tuesday evenings. I live in WC, so I'll miss out. Thanks.
