Book group Monday 12th June: Waterland by Graham Swift

The next book group book is Waterland by Graham Swift. Published in 1983, it won the Guardian Fiction Prize and was shortlisted for the Booker (beaten by The Life and Times of Michael K - JM Coetzee).

From Goodreads: Set in the bleak Fen Country of East Anglia, and spanning some 240 years in the lives of its haunted narrator and his ancestors, Waterland is a book that takes in eels and incest, ale-making and madness, the heartless sweep of history and a family romance as tormented as any in Greek tragedy.

We will meet in the White Lion at 8pm on Monday 12th June. Newbies and long-lost members always welcome (back).
