Kairos Book Club: “Venomous Lumpsucker” by Ned Beauman
Friday March 17th
“The venomous lumpsucker is the most intelligent fish on the planet. Or maybe it was the most intelligent fish on the planet. Because it might already be extinct. Nobody knows. And nobody cares. Except for two people….Gripping and singular, Venomous Lumpsucker is a comedy about environmental devastation that asks: do we have it in us to avert the tragedy of mass extinction?”
For the first meeting of our new book club we’ll be talking about Ned Beauman’s darkly satirical novel Venomous Lumpsucker, reviewed in the London Review of Books, the Observer, the Guardian and the Financial Times.
Kairos, The Bookroom, Essex Hall, 1-6 Essex Street, WC2R 3HY
