Hilary Mantel’s novel “Beyond Black” divided opinion as we expected. Alison, the central character, is haunted literally and emotionally by horrors from her abusive childhood. Undoubtedly well-written and well-researched it nevertheless delivered its message with such grim humour and such deeply unpleasant details that it proved a book to be admired (by a few) rather than enjoyed. Our next book is Ian McEwan’s multi-award winning “Atonement”.
Next meeting 9th July at the Parish Hall.
