Daytime Book Club

The daytime book club meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 10.30am.

The next meeting will be 9th January 2020

The book is: Middle England by Jonathan Coe

Set in the Midlands and London over the last eight years, Middle England follows a brilliantly vivid cast of characters through a time of immense change and disruption in Britain.

There are the early married years of Sophie and Ian who disagree about the future of Britain and, possibly, the future of their relationship; Sophie’s grandfather whose final act is to send a postal vote for the European referendum; Doug, the political commentator, whose young daughter despairs of his lack of political nous and Doug’s Remaining Tory politician partner who is savaged by the crazed trolls of Twitter.

And within all these lives is the story of England itself: a story of nostalgia and irony; of friendship and rage, humour and intense bewilderment.
