The multi award-winning novel, The Natural Way of Things (2015) by Charlotte Wood will be the focus of our discussion in August.
Two young women awaken from a drugged sleep to find themselves imprisoned, along with eight others, in an abandoned property in the middle of a desert. It is an exploration of contemporary misogyny and corporate control, and of what it means to hunt and be hunted. Most of all, it is the story of two friends, their sisterly love and courage.
The Natural Way of Things is an extraordinary novel; gripping, inspired and powerful.
