    I hate to ruin this fun dropout party, but I'm healthy and still planning to go to tonight's meeting! :D Hopefully they'll be someone else there to hear my crazy rantings, would hate to burden the staff with them. Get better soon guys!

    Hi, it must be the month of colds, because I have one too. It's really annoying, as I loved this book and was really looking forward to discussing it. Good suggestion, Steve!

    Upstairs at the London is a wine/ tapas bar now. Really nice but ordering might be a bit complicated, might need to find a nook downstairs.

    Wish I could join you all later this week, I'm now back in London and missing the best book club on the planet! I've found a local meetup book club here but it's got a very high benchmark to live up to! Fingers crossed the people are as nice and the book recommendations are as good as TLTBC. I loved chatting books with you all over the last few years. All the best

    Hi all, yes the title is Behind the Beautiful Forevers. It's a lovely read so far I am finding.

    I've also found a couple of essays that Katherine Boo has written which have some characters you may recognise, and I was thinking they may provide some interesting food for conversation around the art of storytelling in non-fiction.

    Search for Katerine Boo on It's a great site for all kinds of essay from random sources, including some fascinating vintage ones.
    Happy reading.

    The book I found is called 'Behind the Beautiful Forevers'. It is the correct book?

  • Andy C.

    Wait- should this be "Behind the Beautiful Forevers"?
