Each month I host an open meeting at Browsers Bookshop, Woodbridge in Suffolk. We usually focus on modern fiction and the discussion regularly attracts around 20 people, men and women, of all ages.

Peculiar Ground
by Lucy Hughes-Hallet
A huge, funny, sensuous and haunting book, according to reviewers, and longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize. What do you think of it? Join in the discussion at Browsers Bookshop, Woodbridge.

Midwinter Break
by Bernard MacLaverty
Beautifully written with so many layers to unpack, it was standing room only for this discussion. A few people found they couldn't relate to the characters, but most found the presentation of a long relationship and the things left unsaid to be fascinating and moving.

Based on a True Story
by Delphine de Vigan
A book about friendship, writing and the boundary between reality and fantasy. Is this a novel? A thriller? A memoir? What will you decide? Come along to share your view. We're meeting a week later than usual, skipping a February date.

My Name is Leon
by Kit de Waal
Warm, charming characters in a slice of life from the 1980s. Humour and tragedy, told from the perspective of a nine-year-old boy. Most loved this book though some thought it too slow and couldn't engage with the narrator.
