Dear friends,

I am happy to invite you to our March Protected content . Given the current situation the activity will be online.

Important note for first-time attendees: To attend this activity, the group expects you to read the book and present your opinion. No-shows from past activities are tracked.

The book selected for this event is "Old Filth" by Jane Gardam and was picked by Bettina.

Book description on amazon.de:
Sir Edward Feathers has had a brilliant career, from his early days as a lawyer in Southeast Asia, where he earned the nickname Old Filth (Failed In London, Try Hong Kong) to his final working days as a respected judge at the bar. Yet through it all he has carried with him the wounds of a difficult and emotionally hollow childhood.

Now an eighty-year-old widower living in comfortable seclusion in Dorset, Feathers is finally free from the demands of his work and the sentimental scaffolding that has sustained him throughout his life. He slips back into the past with ever mounting frequency and intensity, and on the tide of these vivid, lyrical musings, Feathers approaches a reckoning with his own history. Not all the old filth, it seems, can be cleaned away.

Looking forward to seeing you!
Your Consuls - Chiara and Antonio
