What we’re about
Love books? Each month we will read a novel that is no more than 400 pages. We read it, we ask questions and discuss the novel in an open forum. We have a relaxed attitude and everyone is welcome to join in the discussion and bring a different interpretations of the novel. Typically we do all of this over coffee, patisseries or breakfast!

- The Age of Iron by J M CoetzeeThe Foxley Hatch - JD Wetherspoon, Purley
Chosen to complement the Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter (last month's book).
Age of Iron is a 1990 novel by South African Nobel Prize winner J. M. Coetzee. It is among his most popular works and was the 1990 Sunday Express Book of the Year. In it, he paints a picture of social and political tragedy unfolding in a country ravaged by racism and violence.
Brilliantly crafted and resonant with metaphor, Age of Iron is "a superbly realized novel whose truths cut to the bone." ( The New York Times Book Review )
