Our October read is "The Shadow Lines" by Amitav Ghosh.

"Opening in Calcutta in the Protected content , Amitav Ghosh's radiant second novel follows two families—one English, one Bengali—as their lives intertwine in tragic and comic ways. The narrator, Indian born and English educated, traces events back and forth in time, from the outbreak of World War II to the late twentieth century, through years of Bengali partition and violence, observing the ways in which political events invade private lives."

Anita will be our special guest.

All albatross members who have read the book are welcome to join us.

Happy reading everyone!
