Short Story Club: “The Victim” by P.D. James
June 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Short Story Club is our low-commitment, high-reward reading group for those who love short stories and want to hear more of them, and for those who are curious about the shorter form of fiction. We gather around with a glass of wine, one of our booksellers introduces then reads the story in its entirety and then we open up to a group discussion. It’s a brilliant way to meet new people and hear new stories, and we like to think you’ll leave with a brighter view of the world around you. There is something magical about short stories. Come see for yourself!
Katalina will be reading…
“The Victim” by P.D. James
‘On the whole, it was easier than I had expected. Only once did I feel myself at risk. That was when the Inspector suddenly intervened. He said in a harsh voice: “He married your wife, didn’t he? Took her away from you some people might say. Nice piece of goods, too, by the look of her. Didn’t you feel any grievance?”
I had been expecting this question. I knew exactly what I would say.’
The late, great P. D. James takes us inside the mind of a murderer.
We are delighted to be spending 2019 reading the new series from legendary publisher Faber & Faber of the finest short stories ever: Faber Stories. We’ll be reading a selection of this beautiful new series of short stories new and old, discovering a range of writers you already love and new ones to discover.
“When you read a short story, you come out a little more aware and a little more in love with the world…” — George Saunders
