The noise of timeThe Artswords Reading Group will meet at Lower Shaw Farm at 7.30pm Tuesday 14th November to discuss  The Noise of Time by Julian Barnes.

“A compact masterpiece dedicated to the Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich: Julian Barnes’s first novel since his best-selling, Man Booker Prize–winning The Sense of an Ending.

Barnes elegantly guides us through the trajectory of Shostakovitch’s career, at the same time illuminating the tumultuous evolution of the Soviet Union. The result is both a stunning portrait of a relentlessly fascinating man and a brilliant exploration of the meaning of art and its place in society.”

If you are interested in taking part in the lively, deep, humorous and intensely interesting discussions that the group is known for then contact, new members are always more than welcome.
