What I Love by Siri Hustvedt. The Guardian review says, 'Any novel, as any piece of art, relies on expressing the particular perceptions of its author while being sufficiently recognisable to the audience to be meaningful. This paradox is what fascinates Siri Hustvedt. She is interested in the gap between the shared story and the individual reading.' A bit of Rloand Barthes there.

You can enjoy food and drinks at your own cost while taking part in the Book Club. The prices are the Tanglin Club are very reasonable. Payment in cash to a the hosting member of Tanglin Club.

The Singapore Grip proved illusive to some of our book club members, copies being unavailable in Singapore. Next meeting the books should have arrived and been read.

The Singapore Grip interweaves a wealth of research that James Gordon Farrell put into his masterpiece, the third and sadly the last in his Empire Trilogy. He died in a fishing accident in Cork the year after this book was published in 1978.
The cast ranges from old colonials to new arrivals, and Farrell's signature misfits. As with his previous novels, Troubles (set in Ireland) and The Siege of Krisnapur, both of which won a Booker Prize, Farrell presents challenging but highly rewarding reading.
