Milkman sold more copies at Five Leaves in the five days after the Booker announcement than any of the previous winners over a whole year, possibly lifetime sales.  It’s set in Northern Ireland, at the height of the Troubles.

This novel is not difficult, though it demands attention. Here’s the Guardian review: www.theguardian.com/books/2018/may/31/milkman-anna-burns-review-northern-ireland

Five Leaves book group is an open group. You are welcome to attend once or as often as you like! The meetings are free and refreshments are provided. All we ask is that you read the book in advance. There’s always a (rather) short introduction by one of the group or a member of Five Leaves staff to get the discussion going.

For the avoidance of doubt, Anna Burns is not attending!

Let us know you are coming on events@fiveleaves.co.uk

You can source the book wherever you like, but in the lead up to the book group we discount the relevant book by 15%.
