(Co-ordinator Carole Jones on 01392 811123)

On 8th January, we discussed "The Quiet American" by Graham Greene. With his usual economy of style he conjures the sights, sounds and brooding menace of war-torn Vietnam in the 1950s. He writes with an impressive precision and insight as he explores the complexities of human nature and relationships when under pressure . Fowler, the central character, is a British journalist who prides himself on being a detached observer, just a reporter of what he sees, but in the end he is forced to engage with circumstances that test his morality and decency. Greene exposes the dangers of arrogant foreign interference in a misunderstood culture and though published in 1955 the book is as relevant today as it was then.

Our next meeting is on 12th February when we will be discussing - “The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt.
