About the event

MA Book Club is the perfect chance to dive into discussion about some of the most contemporary and diverse literature out today. It's incredibly casual, a couple of hours once a month to chat, meet new people, have a glass of wine and read some great new books.

You can opt in, and opt out, each month - we will announce each month's title the month before, and you can buy your spot when it comes up on the website. Each month is £15, which includes your copy of the book AND your first drink completely free on the night. You can pop in and buy your book directly from the shop, or we can deliver.

If you would like you book copy delivered, please let us know by popping us an email at zoe@manningtreearts.com.

If you would like your book collected from the shop, you don't need to do anything, your book will be available to pick up anytime from the following day.

BIG SWISS

Jen Beagin

'Made me laugh and think too much (the right amount?) about sex and death and honesty.' MONICA HEISEY

'Utterly addictive. . . I laughed so hard it ached.' GILLIAN ANDERSON

'Juicy, salacious and compelling. Trauma shouldn't be this fun.' SARA PASCOE

Darkly comic and utterly unputdownable, Beagin's freewheeling novel centres on the unconventional relationship between the quirky Greta and the enigmatic Big Swiss.

Greta liked knowing people's secrets. That wasn't a problem. Until she met Big Swiss. Big Swiss. That's Greta's nickname for her - she is tall, and she is from Switzerland. Well that's how Greta imagines her; they haven't actually met in person. Nor has Greta actually ever been to Switzerland.

What Greta doesn't know is that she's about to bump into Big Swiss in the local dog park. A new - and not entirely honest - relationship is going to be born.

A relationship that will transform both of their lives.
