Our brand new British Towns book group meets on the last Monday of every month. This month we'll be reading On The Black Hill by Bruce Chatwin.
Following on from the Scottish Decades Book Group of last year and the Muriel Spark Reading Group in 2018,in 2020we're branching out geographically with the brand new theme ofBritish and Irish towns! This month we'll be reading On The Black Hill by Bruce Chatwin.On the Black Hill is an elegantly written tale of identical twin brothers who grow up on a farm in rural Wales and never leave home. They till the rough soil and sleep in the same bed, touched only occasionally by the advances of the twentieth century.In depicting the lives of Benjamin and Lewis and their interactions with their small local community Chatwin comments movingly on the larger questions of human experience.
