The Last Days of the Lacuna Cabal - Sean Dixon

An extraordinary book. This is quirky Canadian writing at its best. If this is not nominated for an award, I will be very suprised.
Take a strange group of "women", join them up to the Lacuna Cabal Montreal Young Woman's Book Club, a book club that like to, really live, the books they read, throw in The Epic of Gilgamesh, the Bhagdad Blogger, death, sexuality and group politics and you get the idea.
Wonderful, challenging and engaging! I will be buying copies for our Book Groups!

Yes Vicki, I'm doing the same for our book club. What a joy this book is to read. There are not only many topics to explore but a refreshing and original narrative voice that has you literally tearing through the pages.
