Our *NEW* online only subscription gives you access to the wonderful online community - the book club meeting and the LIVE author Q&A.
The Tasting Notes Book Club aims to bring together book enthusiasts through their love of reading. Life over the past few years has highlighted how much we need human contact, how we thrive when we can talk to others face to face (even if it is via the internet) and ultimately, how important it is to look after ourselves and those around us.
Our July pick is - Fault Lines by Emily Itami and our online book club discussion in on SUNDAY 31st July.
You will be sent an email with the link to the book club discussion during the weekend leading up to the event.
Synopsis for the book:
A brilliant modern love story. I found it atmospheric and transporting but also wise, clever and universal in its exploration of love, family and identity. I loved it' Cathy Rentzenbrink
Mizuki is a Japanese housewife. She has a hardworking husband, two adorable children and a beautiful Tokyo apartment. It's everything a woman could want, yet sometimes she wonders whether it would be more fun to throw herself off the high-rise balcony than spend another evening not talking to her husband or hanging up laundry.
Then, one rainy night, she meets Kiyoshi, a successful restaurateur. In him, she rediscovers freedom, friendship, a voice, and the neon, electric pulse of the city she has always loved. But the further she falls into their relationship, the clearer it becomes that she is living two lives - and in the end, we can choose only one.
Alluring, compelling, startlingly honest and darkly funny, Fault Lines is a bittersweet love story and a daring exploration of modern relationships from a writer to watch.
