New Meetup: The Believers - by Zoe Heller

From: Sheila C

Announcing a new Meetup for Book Club London East and Essex!

What: The Believers - by Zoe Heller

When: November 2,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
The Slug and Lettuce,
184 George Lane,
South Woodford,
London,
E18 1AY

This particular Slug and Lettuce tends to be reasonably quiet. As a bonus, food on Mondays is 1/2 price, so I expect most of us will be having a bite to eat.

The book of the month, as chosen by those who came in October, is The Believers - by Zoe Heller. Here are some reviews of the book:

'Astonishingly well-observed, its virtuoso prose compressed and beautiful. Zo? Heller possesses true brilliance as a writer...large, intelligent and stunningly written...a subtle, funny and dark family farce about faith and identity...in its thundering confidence and lyricism, The Believers is the work of a writer at the top of her game' - Guardian

'This is a novel of ideas: what does one believe in, and how does that affect the way one lives? But if that makes the novel sound dull and worthy, it isn't. The prose sings off the page. Heller's eye for family dynamics is razor-sharp; she is also a past master at the art of swearing. Open this book and settle down for 306 pages of pure pleasure.' - The Independent

Sounds great! Hope to see you there!
