About this month's book:

"An exuberant debut, The Husbands delights in how do we navigate life, love, and choice in a world of never-ending options?

When Lauren returns home to her flat in London late one night, she is greeted at the door by her husband, Michael. There’s only one problem—she’s not married. She’s never seen this man before in her life. But according to her friends, her much-improved decor, and the photos on her phone, they’ve been together for years.

As Lauren tries to puzzle out how she could be married to someone she can’t remember meeting, Michael goes to the attic to change a lightbulb and abruptly disappears. In his place, a new man emerges, and a new, slightly altered life re-forms around her. Realizing that her attic is creating an infinite supply of husbands, Lauren confronts the question: If swapping lives is as easy as changing a lightbulb, how do you know you’ve taken the right path? When do you stop trying to do better and start actually living?" (Goodreads)

About the QueKuSa FLINTA+ Film and Book Club:

  • Our Book and Film Club Meetups are casual spaces to discuss, dissect and debate representations of FLINTA+ people in film and literature. 
  • No need to have a film studies or lit degree - just bring your own opinions (however well/ill-informed) and respectfully agree or disagree with those of others. 
  • No need to identify as FLINTA+ but we expect all attendees to appreciate the centring of FLINTA+ people in our discussions.
  • This is a "brave space" (where we encourage discussion) not a "safe space" (where we expect everyone to agree). 
  • But remember: while we might be tough on the issues, we try to remain kind to each other.
