Forgotten Fiction is a monthly bookclub where we travel back in time to rediscover 'lost' literary gems of the 20th Century. Each session is curated around a specific theme and features two books carefully chosen to provide the basis for our discussion. Truth can indeed be Stranger Than Fiction and on July 25th our book club will discuss two extraordinary novels based on real events: 'Woman At Point Zero' by Nawal El Saadawi and 'Blow Your House Down' by Pat Barker. As always, our brand of discussion is light-hearted, informal & non-academic. Our journey will be fuelled by literary-inspired gin cocktails served in jam jars.
