Discussion Group: The Gap of Time by Jeanette Winterson
In this retelling of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, we move from London, a city reeling after the 2008 financial crisis, to a storm-ravaged American city called New Bohemia. The story is one of childhood friendship, money, status, technology and the elliptical nature of time. This book group meets the last Tuesday of every month at 3pm.
