haseebasad (London)

I am a young graduate working in Mayfair. I have a love of literature, but being from a stem background I lack a network that shares this passion and cultivates it further. I’d like to join a club to expand my horizon, particularly around the Greats, which are an interest of mine.

The Book Club (London)

I founded a book club that ran for 25 years, until it was brought to a (hopefully temporary) halt by Covid. Eventually comprising seven regular members (4 women and 3 men), it met once a month, usually in a restaurant in Central London, and discussed a wide range of literature, both fiction and non-fiction, prose and poetry, from Greek and Roman classics in translation to recent literary novels. (On one significant anniversary, we agreed that our favourite book club read had been Alexandre Dumas's The Count of Monte Cristo.) Three or four of us would like to rekindle the group with fresh blood, so I would love to hear from anyone interested in joining us.

Giovanni's Room
by James Baldwin | Buy this book
I've never lived in Paris, or had an affair with a barman, but as I read this novel I found myself thinking over and over again: "yes, yes, this is how it is". I'm unsure how to describe it other than we are all the narrator, and we have all lived in Giovanni's room
