Pageturners meet on Wednesday 9th March at 5.30pm to discuss The Age of Magic, the new novel from Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri.
From the publisher: A group of world-weary travellers discover the meaning of life in a mysterious Swiss mountain village. Eight weary film-makers, travelling from Paris to Basel, arrive at a small Swiss hotel on the shores of a luminous lake. Above them, strewn with lights that twinkle in the darkness, looms the towering Rigi mountain. Over the course of three days and two nights, the travellers will find themselves drawn in to the mystery of the mountain reflected in the lake. One by one, they will be disturbed, enlightened, and transformed, each in a different way. An intoxicating and dreamlike tale unfolds. Allow yourself to be transformed. Having shown a different way of seeing the world, Ben Okri now offers a different way of reading.
