READING CLUB: Waiting for the barbarians by J.M. Coetzee

From 28th January to 11th March

Waiting for the Barbarians (1982)is written in the voice of the Magistrate of a remote post of the Empire, the book tells the story of the eccentric old Magistrate, and the conflict between the officials of the Empire, and the Barbarians in the Desert, whom they expect to attack. The Magistrate obsesses a bit about his sexual eccentricities, but it is part of the book's theme of humanity. The narrator is very self aware, and is continually calling everything into question.

If you are already socio, then it's just 2€ per session, or 5€ per month. There is a group on Thursday at 4 pm and another one on Friday at 6.30 pm.
The book is indeed in English.
Hope to see you there.

These "talleres" are simply to talk about a different subject every week. Once a month we will talk about a book, in this case Waiting for the Barbarians. You just need to come to Las Conchas and ask for it.
You should just pass by and see by yourself!
