Five Leaves open book group discusses A Pale View of the Hills, by Kazuo Ishiguru
Date(s) - Tuesday, 26th November

Five Leaves Bookshop
Five Leaves open book group discusses Ishiguro’s first novel.
Ishiguro tells the story of Etsuko, a Japanese woman now living alone in England, dwelling on the recent suicide of her daughter. Retreating into the past, she finds herself reliving one particular hot summer night in Nagasaki, when she and her friends struggled to rebuild their lives after the war. But then as she recalls her strange friendship with Sachiko – a wealthy woman reduced to vagrancy – the memories take on a disturbing cast.
We don’t mind where you source the book, but in the lead up to the meetings we offer 15% discount generally off book group books. Our book group is quite open so you can attend one, a few or every meeting or just drop in when you fancy discussing the book of the evening.
For the avoidance of doubt, Ishiguro will not be attending the event!
