After a short summer hiatus, we return for our September reading group with ‘A Whole Life’ by Robert Seethaler. This internationally acclaimed and Booker shortlisted novel is nothing short of a masterpiece, a gently powerful contemplation of a self-sustaining life in 20th century Switzerland. Andreas Egger knows every path and peak of his mountain valley, the source of his sustenance, his livelihood – his home. His story is one of man’s relationship with an ancient landscape, of the value of solitude, the arrival of the modern world, and above all, of the moments, great and small, that make us who we are.

The Literary Odyssey reading group is all about discovering new, and translated, fiction from writers from all over the world.  If you’re a fan of great literary fiction please come along, we always welcome new faces and opinions!


Book places

Collect before the day £5

These specially reduced event book vouchers must be collected from the bookshop before Wednesday 27th September.

Collect on the day £5

These event book vouchers can be collected at any time, including on the door of the event.

Collecting your event book voucher

As our event book vouchers have a redeemable value, we do not post them out. They are available for collection from the bookshop at any point before the event (and there is often a slight incentive with this option), or alternatively they can be collected on the door of the event.

Group bookings

If you require more than 10 places, please contact the bookshop for a group booking so that we can arrange to seat you together.

How our reading group book vouchers work

The full price of your Reading Group book vouchers is an advance book deposit against any book on our shelves, as well as guaranteeing admittance to the reading group for one person. They are only valid on the evening of the meeting.

Pricing explanation

Meeting people at the bookshop is the best part of being a bookseller, so the discounted price for collection in advance is a little incentive for you to come and visit us before the day of the event itself!

Refunds and Exchanges

In order to maintain the great value of our event book vouchers, we have to reduce administration to an absolute minimum. This means that we aren’t able to refund or exchange event book vouchers.
