So, on the 11th day of the 11th month, the bookclub shall read… Eleven by Mark Watson. (See what I did there, with the clever post title and everything?)
This is the story of radio DJ Xavier Ireland, who by night offers words of wisdom to sleepless Londoners and by day keeps himself to himself. That is, until a one-of-a-kind encounter forces him to confront his own biggest regret. Meanwhile, a single moment sparks a chain of events that will affect eleven lives across the city, with unstoppable consequences…Eleven is a tale of love, loss, Scrabble and six degrees of separation, asking whether the choices we don’t make affect us just as powerfully as those we do.
Why this book? Well, because Mark Watson will be one of the authors at November’s Short Stories Aloud, that’s why.
Day: Tuesday, 11th November
