Just a final reminder that Artswords Reading Group takes place at Lower Shaw Farm, Tuesday 19th June, at 7.30 pm and this month they will be discussing​ Nutshell.

Nutshell is the 14th novel by Ian McEwan, one of Britain’s best-known novelists, and is a re-telling of Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, from the point of view of an unborn child.

“Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She’s still in the marital home — a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse — but John’s not here. Instead, she’s with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy’s womb.”

Told from a perspective unlike any other, Nutshell is a classic tale of murder and deceit from one of the world’s master storytellers.
