A BOOK DISCUSSION PAIRED WITH WHISKEY
For May, Bourbon Book Club attendees will discuss The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene.
We're planning to hold this book club in person; face masks will be required and attendence will be capped at 12 participants. Please register at the link below to secure your spot.
First published in 1948, Graham Greene's masterpiece, The Heart of the Matter, tells the story of a good man enmeshed in love, intrigue, and evil in a West African coastal town. Scobie is bound by strict integrity to his role as assistant police commissioner and by severe responsibility to his wife, Louise, for whom he cares with a fatal pity.
When Scobie falls in love with the young widow Helen, he finds vital passion again yielding to pity, integrity giving way to deceit and dishonor—a vortex leading directly to murder. As Scobie's world crumbles, his personal crisis develops the foundation of a story by turns suspenseful, fascinating, and, finally, tragic.
The Heart of the Matter is the unforgettable portrait of one man—flawed yet heroic, destroyed and redeemed by a terrible conflict of passion and faith.
Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance.
In the event that gathering in person is no longer feasible, the group will meet virtually instead.
