Oryx and Crake, Margaret Atwood

Oryx and CrakeHello Book Clubbers! We’ve picked Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake for the next discussion.

‘In Jimmy, Atwood has created a great character: a tragic-comic artist of the future, part buffoon, part Orpheus. An adman who’s a sad man; a jealous lover who’s in perpetual mourning; a fantasist who can only remember the past’ – Independent

‘Gripping and remarkably imagined’ – London Review of Books

We’ll be discussing it on Monday 21th October at 5.30pm, Costa Coffee, Upper Mall Frenchgate Centre and look forward to seeing you all there.

If you’d like to buy it from Waterstones Doncaster, you can let Leilah know and they’ll order it in for you. Book club members are entitled to £1 off, disclaimer.

Book details

Pigs might not fly but they are strangely altered. So, for that matter, are wolves and racoons. A man, once named Jimmy, lives in a tree, wrapped in old bedsheets, now calls himself Snowman. The voice of Oryx, the woman he loved, teasingly haunts him. And the green-eyed Children of Crake are, for some reason, his responsibility.
