September TBYL Book Club

It’s that time again when I pick a book that I think we’ll all enjoy talking about…

This month’s book will have you guessing from cover to cover. What is real? Who is Frida? Where did that tiger come from?

the night guestI’d like to invite you to read Fiona McFarlane’s The Night Guest (Penguin) during September, ready for us to chat about on Facebook starting Monday, 30 September 2013.

One morning Ruth wakes thinking a tiger has been in her seaside house. Later that day a formidable woman called Frida arrives, looking as if she’s blown in from the sea. In fact she’s come to care for Ruth. Frida and the tiger: both are here to stay, and neither is what they seem.

Which of them can Ruth trust? And as memories of her childhood in Fiji press upon her with increasing urgency, can she even trust herself?

If you’d like to know more about the book, I’ll be posting my review of The Night Guest on Monday next week, along with an author interview with Fiona.
