We have a thriving book club here at Jaffé & Neale, which meets at 6.30pm on the first Wednesday of every month in Chipping Norton and the last Tuesday of every month in Stow-on-the-Wold. There’s no membership, no charge, and no obligation to come every month, so if you like the sound of a particular book, and would like to informally discuss it over a glass of wine, we’d love to see you. Check this page for our current book titles. We also offer 10% off our book club choice in store.
We all have our own particular reading tastes, be it classical fiction, historical literature or gripping thrillers, but being a part of a book club allows us to step outside our reading comfort zone and explore other genres. Love it or Hate it there is always a discussion to be had and, you never know, there may be a new favourite read among the chosen books….

Mend the Living, by Maylis de Kerangal
A twenty-four-hour whirlwind of death and life. In the depths of a winter’s night, the heart of Simon Limbeau is resting, readying itself for the day to come. In a few hours’ time, just before six, his alarm will go off and he will venture into the freezing dawn, drive down to the beach, and go surfing with his friends.
A trip he has made a hundred times and yet, today, the heart of Simon Limbeau will encounter a very different course. But for now, the black-box of his body is free to leap, swell, melt and sink, just as it has throughout the years of Simon’s young life.5.50 a.m. This is his heart. And here is its story. Translated from the French by Jessica Moore.
