EUROPEAN Book Club
Saturday, March 7 - 03:00pm
Organized by the Consulate General of Switzerland in Vancouver and EUNIC Canada-Vancouver, the next appointment with the EU Book Club will be with a 2013 Swiss novella
On a business trip to Tunisia, Preising, a leading Swiss industrialist, is invited to spend the week with the daughter of a local gangster whom he accompanies to the wedding of two London city traders at an old Berber camp in the desert which has been transformed into a luxury resort. With the wedding party in full swing, the bride riding up the aisle on a camel, the global financial system stands on the brink of collapse. As the wedding guests nurse their hangovers, they learn that the pound has depreciated tenfold, and their world begins to crumble around them.
