Our ‘A Novel Idea’ Book Club read and review will be“Pure” by Andrew Miller on the 5th April. Please join us on ZOOM.
Deep in the heart of Paris, its oldest cemetery is, by 1785, overflowing, tainting the very breath of those who live nearby. Into their midst comes Jean-Baptiste Baratte, a young, provincial engineer charged by the king with demolishing it.
At first Baratte sees this as a chance to clear the burden of history, a fitting task for a modern man of reason. But before long, he begins to suspect that the destruction of the cemetery might be a prelude to his own.
We always have interesting discussions about the historical setting of each book and its success in TV, Cinema etc. Feel free to join and listen even if you haven’t read the book.
The zoom link will be sent out by Henley on the day.
All are welcome – you do not even need to have read the book! The discussions range far and wide and are not just only about the contents of the book. If you would like to receive the monthly zoom link and join in then please contact Henley by email here
