A book club in SE London, everyone welcome. We meet once a month currently upstairs at The Rose pub opposite New Cross Gate station, on a Monday or a Tuesday at 7pm to discuss a book chosen by those who attended the previous one. There isn't a particular theme to this book club but we'll read more or less equal numbers of books by female and male authors.
The Devil comes to Moscow, but he isn't all bad; Pontius Pilate sentences a charismatic leader to his death, but yearns for redemption; and a writer tries to destroy his greatest tale, but discovers that manuscripts don't burn. Multi-layered and entrancing, blending sharp satire with glorious fantasy, The Master and Margarita is ceaselessly inventive and profoundly moving. In its imaginative freedom and raising of eternal human concerns, it is one of the world's great novels.
This event will be online on zoom and a link will be provided here on the 21st September so keep an eye out if you want to join us friendly New Cross Bookclub people 📚
