September's meetup saw very lengthy discussion about the chosen books, particularly Quiet which I think everyone who attended can say is certainly a book that inspires thought and debate! I wonder if October's choices will prove as thought provoking... they are
Denise Mina - Gods and Beasts (nominated by Sue)
A grandfather brutally murdered in a post office raid.
A corrupt politician fighting for his future.
A police force up for sale.
Three crimes leading to one question - who really runs Glasgow?
Recently returned to work after the birth of her twins, DS Alex Morrow is called in to head the murder enquiry. The grandfather had helped the gunmen before being shot - was as it a moment of madness, a noble act of self-sacrifice, or did the old man and his killer share a dark past?
One city, three crimes and a powerful connection that runs from Glasgow's dark criminal underworld to the international spheres of the super rich.
Truman Capote - Breakfast at Tiffany's (nominated by Rachel - our new organiser!)
Meet Holly Golightly - a free spirited, lop sided, romantic girl about town. With her tousled blonde hair and upturned nose, dark glasses and chic black dresses, Holly is a style sensation wherever she goes. Her apartment rocks to Martini-soaked parties and she plays hostess to millionaires and gangsters alike. Yet Holly never loses sight of her ultimate dream - to find a real-life place like Tiffany's that makes her feel at home.
Full of sharp wit and exuberant, larger-than-life characters, which vividly capture the restless madcap era of 1940s New York. Breakfast at Tiffany's will make you fall in love, perhaps for the first time, with a book.
And that's me signing off as Organiser, my last responsibility being to schedule this meetup. I've had a great few years and look forward to continuing to come along as an attendee. Best of luck and thanks to Rachel for taking over the baton!
