The Buried Giant, Kazuo Ishiguro
From Amazon: "In post-Arthurian Britain, the wars that once raged between the Saxons and the Britons have finally ceased. Axl and Beatrice, an elderly British couple, set off to visit their son, whom they haven't seen in years. And, because a strange mist has caused mass amnesia throughout the land, they can scarcely remember anything about him. As they are joined on their journey by a Saxon warrior, his orphan charge, and an illustrious knight, Axl and Beatrice slowly begin to remember the dark and troubled past they all share. By turns savage, suspenseful, and intensely moving, The Buried Giant is a luminous meditation on the act of forgetting and the power of memory."

    What we're about

    Looking to connect with fellow bookworms in the Mountain View area? You've come to the right place! We are a group of avid readers who like to stay up-to-date on the latest in literature, while still enjoying the classics. And we're not all work and no play-- there will be plenty of socializing and maybe a cocktail/coffee or two, too! Potential books will be selected by members and curated from book awards lists (think Man Booker Prize, National Book Award, etc.), and voted on by members in advance of each meet up. I hope you'll join us!
