This month's read is The Most Beautiful Thing by Fiona Robyn. A review from Amazon says: Though it is not specified, Joe appears to have high level autism and Robyn has captured perfectly the strains and difficulties of Joe's experiences in the everyday world. However, her light touch also encapsulates the beauty that Joe finds as he explores Amsterdam, and reading this book is like seeing the wonder of the world through the eyes of a child, with the analysis of an intelligent adult. Fiona Robyn's descriptions of Amsterdam, of the art world and of the strains within family relationships are also spot on. All in all, an excellent read.

The Book Club meets monthly over drinks, and everybody is welcome to attend, whether they've had the chance to read the book or not.
