September Meeting

Gustav SonataFor our book club meeting on Fri 23 September, we read The Gustav Sonata by Rose Tremain.

Jacket Synopsis:
Gustav Perle grows up in a small town in Switzerland, where the horrors of the Second World War seem distant. He adores his mother but she treats him with bitter severity. Older, and increasingly curious about his absent father, Gustav discovers the traces of an erotic love affair – traces which still glow white-hot even now.
