WHITESTONE BOOK CLUB

Our last meeting was interesting and unusual as only two of our members had diligently read “biographThe Golden Notebook” (Doris Lessing) all the way through. They were able to illuminate its intentions for the rest of us. Intelligent and probably largely autoical, its fragmented narrative echoed the emotional struggles of the central character as she described her life experiences with extracts from four different notebooks culminating in a fifth, the golden notebook. Read it if you have lots of time on your hands.

Our next book is E.M.Forster’s first novel, “Where Angels Fear to Tread” which will be less of a challenge. Like all his subsequent work, it addresses a clash of cultures and values but with an amusing lightness of touch.

Next meeting: 12th August


The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing Where Angels fear to tread
