Slow Reads Book Club: May Selection!

Today we launch The Independent’s “Slow Reads.” Every month, we will recommend a book – not a new one – that is worth reading s-l-o-w-l-y, not on the Metro or in snatches. A book for which you will shut down the email and muzzle the tweets, avert your eyes from Facebook, and stop text messaging. We’ll provide a Slow Reads Forum for our readers to share their reactions to the book, and to nominate books for the months to come.


Ethics and morality are explored in three very different novels that span place and time, from 16th-century London to a southern plantation on the verge of the Civil War to contemporary Saudi Arabia.
