August Book Group

For August’s book group we will be reading “Island: Collected Stories” by Alistair MacLeod.

51iDbC9xr1L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_“These slow, beautiful stories – resolute and resonant – are small masterpieces: apparently simple but actually crafted with enormous skill and precision. Set against the unforgiving landscape of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, they are all concerned with the complexities and mysteries of the human heart, the unbreakable bonds and unbridgeable chasms between man and woman, parent and child. Steeped in memory and myth and washed in the brine and blood of the long battle with the land and the sea, these stories celebrate a passionate engagement with the natural world and a continuity of the generations in the face of transition, in the face of love and loss.

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.”
