Members' Book Group - Ordinary People by Diana Evans
Join Molly Rosenberg, Director of the RSL, for the RSL Members' Book Group. Prior to our 'Letters From America' event, we will be discussing Diana Evans's novel Ordinary People which won the South Bank Sky Arts Award, was shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction, the Rathbones Folio Prize and the Orwell Prize and was selected as a New Yorker, New Statesman and Financial Times Book of the Year.
Two couples find themselves at a moment of reckoning. Melissa has a new baby and doesn't want to let it change her. Damian has lost his father and intends not to let it get to him. Michael is still in love with Melissa but can't quite get close enough to her to stay faithful. Stephanie just wants to live a normal, happy life on the commuter belt with Damian and their three children but his bereavement is getting in the way.
This will be an informal discussion and refreshments will be provided.
