MAIN BOOK GROUP: “The Pisces” by Melissa Broder

May 28 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Our monthly book group has been running since 2012: come along and discuss books!


Our ever-popular, longest running book group runs on the last Tuesday of the month. Run by one of our booksellers, we want people to come and relax in the surrounds of the bookshop with a glass of wine, and enjoy discussing a book. It’s informal, illuminating and a lot of fun!




How it works Reserve a space online for the next book group, or call/email/pop in to the shop to reserve a place. Please let us know in plenty time if you can no longer attend so we can offer your place to someone else. Please turn up on time so we can begin the discussion promptly. Please read the book before coming!




In May we are discussing the Women’s Prize-longlisted novel The Pisces by Melisa Broder.






Lucy has been writing her dissertation for nine years when she and her boyfriend have a dramatic break up. After she hits rock bottom, her sister in Los Angeles insists that Lucy dog-sit for the summer. Staying in a gorgeous house on Venice Beach, Lucy can find little relief from her anxiety – not in the Greek chorus of women in her love addiction therapy group, not in her frequent Tinder excursions, not even in Dominic the dog’s easy affection. Everything changes when she becomes entranced by an eerily attractive swimmer while sitting alone on the beach rocks one night. But when Lucy learns the truth about his identity, their relationship, and Lucy’s understanding of what love should look like, take a very unexpected turn.
