Democracy in December


This month’s book has been chosen by book group members instead of New Writing North or me for once.

We’re talking about Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith – a thriller set in the terror of 1950s Stalinist Russia, a brutal regime that executed anyone who disagreed with its dogma.

It proclaimed to be a perfect society. So, when a series of brutal murders take place, no one is permitted to say that these are the work of a serial killer. In a perfect society there can be no crime.

Exciting eh?

We’ll be meeting at the lovely Uncle Alberts, which is right next to the train station at 6.30pm on Tuesday 1st December.

Any comments or suggestions for future books do get in touch!
