Evening Book Group Meeting

Non-members are welcome

Date: Wednesday 7 November
Time: 7:00pm
Venue: Rumpole Bar, Hotel Jen, Tanglin Rd

The Singapore Grip proved illusive to some of our book club members, copies being unavailable in Singapore. Next meeting the books should have arrived and been read.

The Singapore Grip interweaves a wealth of research that James Gordon Farrell put into his masterpiece, the third and sadly the last in his Empire Trilogy. He died in a fishing accident in Cork the year after this book was published in 1978.
The cast ranges from old colonials to new arrivals, and Farrell's signature misfits. As with his previous novels, Troubles (set in Ireland) and The Siege of Krisnapur, both of which won a Booker Prize, Farrell presents challenging but highly rewarding reading.
