July (Weds) Meetup : Intimacy by Hanif Kureishi @ Com Viet (Vietnamese)

N.B. The deposit is refunded at the meeting - this is a non-profit making Meetup group (see refund policy for details). In Intimacy a middle-aged writer's multiple affairs and internal battle between intellectual and sexual desires (eventually!) lead him to question the happiness of a six year marriage with his wife and life with two sons. Do old family constructs still have a place in our modern society? Is intellectual desire more important than sexual desire? Hanif Kureishi's unflinchingly honest novel touches a nerve, and will make uncomfortable reading for some or even most.

We'll be eating at Com Viet - authentic Vietnamese cuisine at it's best! Hope to see you there!

    Didn't think much of the book, but great discussion and lovely bunch of people, as usual. And fabulous food, I thought. 'Robert did a great job of chairing....'? - I don't get that, Pav?

    Once again a very enjoyable evening in good company. Despite not enjoying the book I did find the discussion stimulating. Hope to see you all soon.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
