Discussion Reviews for 2019

Wednesday, January 9, 2019: A Month in the Country by J. L. Carr: We met during the first snowfall of the season to discuss this short novel set during the idyllic English summer of 1920 where a damaged WWI  survivor finds healing in nature, community and art. For much of the discussion, we read out passages of masterly prose, both poignant and humorous. Most of us found this quiet novel moving and beautiful but also challenging with its many unfamiliar words and Britishisms (for the non-British among us). What luck, discovering that the film based on the novel is available on YouTube!  MH
