BOOK CLUB: Piranesi – Susanna Clarke

Wednesday 2nd March – 6:45 for 7pm

Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has. In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of it’s wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone. Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims?

The discussion will be led by Jane Owen and Tim O’Kelly
