As is now traditional, I gave everyone a Christmas card, showing the books we have read this year.
The books are:
- Anna of the Five Towns, Arnold Bennett
- On the Black Hill, Bruce Chatwyn,
- Brooklyn, Colm Tóibín
- Me and Mr J, Rachel McIntyre
- The Sisters Brothers, Patrick deWitt
- An Officer and A Spy, Robert Harris
- Sweet Caress, William Boyd
- Exposure, Helen Dunmore
Our next book (for our meeting in January) is Brighton Rock by Graham Greene. I haven't read it before, and haven't seen the 1947 film with Richard Attenborough as Pinkie, either. I'm looking forward to it.
