Pageturners April Read

Pageturners meets on Wednesday 11th April at 5.30pm to discuss The Cage by Lloyd Jones. Two mysterious strangers appear at a hotel in a small country town.  Where have they come from? Who are they? What catastrophe are they fleeing?  The townspeople want answers, but the strangers are unable to speak of their trauma. And before long, wary hospitality shifts to suspicion and fear, and the care of the men slides into appalling cruelty.  Lloyd Jones’s fable-like novel The Cage is a profound and unsettling novel about humanity and dignity and the ease with which we’re able to justify brutality.

Lloyd Jones has written novels, short stories and a memoir. He won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for his novel Mister Pip. His other books include Hand Me Down World and A History of Silence. Lloyd lives in Wellington, NZ. For more information and reviews go to the Pageturners Blog.
