Why are you interested in joining the Newtown Book Club?

The idea came from a conversation with a very lovely friend, Beverley. We wanted to start a book club that wouldn't necessarily stick to the traditional format. So far, so good - we have a fantastic group of very interesting members.

Who is your favourite author?

Tough question. My all time favourite writer is that giant of literature, Tolstoy. My fave contemporary writer would be either Haruki Murukami or Ursula Le Guin. I'm also really starting to love work by the new Russo-German author Alina Bronsky.


Newtown local, voracious reader, non-stop talker and wannabe writer. Love discussing all things literary over a bevvy or two (or three).
