I've updated this Meetup - the poll has given a clear majority by a large margin so the choice of book and other details are now as follows:
Book for October - Tender is the Night - F. Scott Fitzgerald.
In the roaring 20s, the French Riviera was the stylish place for wealthy Americans to visit. Among them are Dick and Nicole - rich, glamorous and enormous fun. Into their circle comes Rosemary, a film star, who is instantly attracted to them, but understands little of the dark secrets and hidden corruption that hold them together. As Dick draws closer to Rosemary, he fractures the delicate structure of his marriage and sets both Nicole and himself on a dangerous path. This exquisite, lyrical novel includes a cast of aristocratic, beautiful people, unhappy love affairs, a duel and incest. The drama is set in the age of materialism, shattered idealism and broken dreams. Despite the maelstrom of interpersonal conflict, "Tender is the Night" has a poignancy and warmth springing from the quality of the writing and the tragic personal experiences on which the book is based.When
