Talking About Books 

4.00pm Tuesday 23 May
The Gustav Sonata by Rose Tremain, our powerful book choice for May, won the 2016 National Jewish Book Award for Fiction. It is set in Switzerland and – appropriately – the concept of neutrality is a major theme. This novel examines the contrasted temperaments and complex friendship, from Kindergarten onwards, between Gustav, growing up in loneliness and poverty, never knowing his morally principled father but revering his cold, emotionally repressed mother, and Anton, a musical prodigy pampered by affluent and ambitious Jewish parents. This is a captivating and ultimately satisfying story about tangled human relationships.
As with all our book choices, a copy is available from the Gura Family Memorial Library, but you might also enjoy reading it on your iPad or Kindle. Our Talking about Books group is led by Judy Frankel and you’re welcome to come whether or not you’ve read the book. There’s no book club membership but please let us know if you would like to be on the Talking About Books mailing list
