Pageturners February Read
Love reading? Each month we discover different authors, topical themes and thought-provoking reads. The group usually meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 5.30pm to 7pm. The February meeting will be held on Wednesday 14th February at 5.30pm at Orange City Library. The book for discussion is Richard Flanagan’s First Person.
Written in the first person by a reality TV producer, Kif Kehlmann, First Person is Kif’s recollection of how as a younger, penniless writer, unable to finish his first novel, he agrees to ghost write the memoir of a notorious con man, Ziggy Heidl, who has defrauded the banks of $700 million. He has six weeks to write the book, for which he’ll receive $10,000. But as the work gets under way, Kehlmann begins to fear that he is being corrupted by the con man. He grows ever more uncertain as to whether he is ghost writing a memoir, or is Ziggy Heidl is rewriting him, his future. At the novel’s heart is a question: what is the truth?
