December 2014:  Becoming Nancy by Terry Ronald

Published April 2011

Chosen by Jeremy

"This is a 'coming of age' novel that has some 'laugh out loud' moments in it and the dust jacket says nice things about Terry (its his first novel, he lives in London with his husband etc. etc.). The book is set in the early 1970s, and while it explores the sexual tensions of the time, there were others around too (I’d forgotten about "Rock Against Racism" for example). The author has the opportunity to put stereotypes and prejudices into perspective and I think he does it quite well – as least good enough that we can expect a debate about it in book group!"
