Book for 26 September: "In a Free State" by VS Naipul
In a Free State is a novel by V.S. Naipaul published in 1971. It won that year's Booker Prize. The plot consists of a framing narrative and three short stories; “One out of Many,” “Tell Me Who to Kill,” and the title story, “In a Free State.”. The work is symphonic, with different movements working towards an overriding theme. It is not too clearly spelled out what that theme is. However, there is an important aspect relating to the price of freedom, with analogies between the three situations.

Upcoming Meetups

What we're about

Meet fellow book lovers who want to read and discuss great literature. Since we will meet once a month only, the books that we discuss should be ones that have been around for a while and that we know are good and have a lasting value. Therefore the main criterion for our selection is that books "have stood the test of time", and after a couple of name changes for our group I think that the new name Timeless Classics expresses best what we have in mind. All members are invited to send me suggestions for books to discuss, that I will put on my ever growing list. Every month I take three books from the list and put them up for a vote for the following month.
