Miles Bookclub

Miles Bookclub

Miles Bookclub will meet 11.30am, Wednesday 2 August 2017. Bookclub members will discuss Rabbit, Run by John Updike.

Rabbit, Run is the book that established John Updike as one of the major American novelists of his—or any other—generation. Its hero is Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom, a onetime high-school basketball star who on an impulse deserts his wife and son. He is twenty-six years old, a man-child caught in a struggle between instinct and thought, self and society, sexual gratification and family duty—even, in a sense, human hardheartedness and divine Grace.

 An opportunity to meet with friends, expand your reading experience, and discuss your favourite book.  

If you would like to join please call... Read more...
