May's Book Club Selection - Sweetness in the Belly by Camilla Gibb

Hello Everyone,

The May 2010 Book Club Selection is Sweetness in the Belly by Camilla Gibb. If you would like to read more about this title, please click here.

About Sweetness in the Belly:

"Like Brick Lane and The Kite Runner, Camilla Gibb’s widely praised new novel is a poignant and intensely atmospheric look beyond the stereotypes of Islam. After her hippie British parents are murdered, Lilly is raised at a Sufi shrine in Morocco. As a young woman she goes on pilgrimage to Harar, Ethiopia, where she teaches Qur’an to children and falls in love with an idealistic doctor. But even swathed in a traditional headscarf, Lilly can’t escape being marked as a foreigner. Forced to flee Ethiopia for England, she must once again confront the riddle of who she is and where she belongs."

If you would like to participate, please pick up a copy of the selected title as soon as you can. Please do your best to read it before May 15th, 2010 if you an Official Member. You can purchase a copy, borrow it from a friend or family member or you can borrow a copy from your local library.
