The CBA Book Club will be meeting to discuss the book Auto-da-Fe by Elias Canetti on Monday July 18th at 10 am at the Daily Planet Coffee House, 1862 Hertel Avenue. The book can be found in the library or can be bought for as little as 40 cents at Amazon.
Auto-da-Fé is the story of Peter Kien, a distinguished, reclusive sinologist living in Germany between the wars. With masterly precision, Canetti reveals Kien's character, displaying the flawed personal relationships which ultimately lead to his destruction.
The next two books we will be reading are:
Blue Mountain by Meir Shalev
Ash on a Young Man’s Sleeve by Dannie Abse
