The next Book is The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel. Lost in Portugal. Lost to grief. With nothing but a chimpanzee.
A man thrown backwards by heartbreak goes in search of an artefact that could unsettle history. A woman carries her husband to a doctor in a suitcase. A Canadian senator begins a new life, in a new country, in the company of a chimp called Odo. From these stories of journeying, of loss and faith, Yann Martel makes a novel unlike any other: moving, profound and magical.
The next meeting is at 7.30 pm on Thursday 18 January at The Junction
