Book of the Month
Our October Book of the Month is The Gods of Tango by Carolina de Robertis.
A powerfully sensual, erotically charged story of music and romance, set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century Buenos Aires.
February 1913: When seventeen-year-old Leda, clutching only a suitcase and her father's cherished violin, arrives in Buenos Aires, she is shocked to find that the husband she has travelled across an ocean to reach has been killed.
Unable to return home, alone, and on the brink of destitution, she is seduced by the tango, the dance that underscores life in her new city.

Bernardine Evaristo’s ‘Girl, Woman, Other’ is as much a book as it is a work of art. A highly considered novel with twelve protagonists, each chapter opening out like the petals of a flower, each different and yet connected, coming from each other while folding into each other.
Or maybe it’s not a flower. Maybe it’s a tapestry, with each woman’s story weaving in, blending in with each other to create a picture of the British Black Experience.
