Bookclub reads Margaret Atwood | 22/02/2019 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Bookclub reads Margaret Atwood

The February read for the bookclub is “Hag-Seed” by Margaret Atwood.

Felix is at the top of his game as Artistic Director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. His productions have amazed and confounded. Now he’s staging a Tempest like no other. It will boost his reputation. It will heal emotional wounds. Or that was the plan. Instead, after an act of unforeseen treachery, Felix is living in exile in a backwoods hovel, haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda. Also brewing revenge. After twelve years, revenge finally arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Here, Felix and his inmate actors will put on his Tempest and snare the traitors who destroyed him. It’s magic! But will it remake Felix as his enemies fall?

Bookclub reads Philip Roth | 22/03/2019 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Bookclub reads Philip Roth

The March read for the bookclub is “I Married a Communist” by Philip Roth .

The second novel of Roth’s eloquent American trilogy, set in the tempestuous McCarthy era – a brilliant successor to American Pastoral, I Married a Communist charts the rise and fall of Ira Ringold, an American roughneck who begins life as a ditch digger in 1930s New Jersey, becoming a big-time radio hotshot in the 1940s. In his heyday as a star – and as a zealous, bullying supporter of ‘progressive’ political causes – Ira marries Hollywood’s beloved leading lady, Eve Frame. Their glamorous honeymoon is short-lived, however, and it is the publication of Eve’s scandalous bestselling expose that identifies Ira as ‘an American taking his orders from Moscow’.

In this story of cruelty, betrayal, and savage revenge, anti-Communist fever pollutes national politics and infects the relationships of ordinary Americans; friends become deadly enemies, parents and children tragically estranged, lovers blacklisted and felled from vertiginous heights.
