July Book Group

The book we’ll be reading for July is ‘Death in the City of Light by David King.

9780751548457“A swastika crowns the Eiffel Tower. Nazis march through the streets.

And in the dark heart of the city, a madman is at work …At a chic Right Bank address, a horrific pile of dismembered bodies is discovered. The property’s owner, well-to-do Dr Petiot, immediately becomes the prime suspect, but he has vanished without a trace. As the police delve into the doctor’s past, a disturbing history of violence and corruption is uncovered.

It seems like a cut-and-dried case, but the investigation soon takes a surprising turn. Is Petiot a sadistic serial killer or a hero of the Resistance? Who are his victims? In this fascinating true account of a case that gripped wartime Paris, David King draws extensively on new sources to paint a chilling portrait of a murderer whose crimes devastated a city already in the grip of evil.”

June Book Group

The book we’ll be reading for June is ‘Will you please be quiet, please? by Raymond Carver.

will-you-please-be-quiet-please“With this, his first collection, Carver breathed new life into the short story. In the pared-down style that has since become his hallmark, Carver showed how humour and tragedy dwell in the hearts of ordinary people, and won a readership that grew with every subsequent brilliant collection of stories, poems and essays that appeared in the last eleven years of his life.”
