The book that inspired Park Chan-wook's astonishing film The Handmaiden.

Shortlisted for the Orange Prize and the Booker Prize

London 1862. Sue Trinder, orphaned at birth, grows up among petty thieves - fingersmiths - under the rough but loving care of Mrs Sucksby and her 'family'. But from the moment she draws breath, Sue's fate is linked to that of another orphan growing up in a gloomy mansion not too many miles away.

Glasgow - Argyle Street
Wednesday 9th January 17:00 - 18:00

The next meeting of our book group, focusing on books with a queer theme - fiction or nonfiction, by queer and non-queer authors alike, all under the broad umbrella of the LGBTQIA+ community. Our first book for 2019 is Sarah Waters' magnificent Fingersmith, the basis of both a BBC drama and the Korean film The Handmaiden, and a landmark in historical fiction since it was first published cementing Waters' status as a writer. The venue is fully wheelchair accessible, and the meeting will be run by a member of our staff who is themselves queer.
