Join us to explore together a wintry and sinister novel in our next Between the Lines reading walking book club.

Written soon after the Second World War, Graham Greene’s short novel The End of the Affair is set a few years earlier. Bendrix, the narrator is a professional writer and published author, known by his last name, begins an affair with the wife of a civil servant during the London Blitz as part of his research for a novel.  Ended by Sarah without explanation, a chance meeting two years later, rekindles his lost love and burgeoning jealousy.  His obsessive pursuit of her is set in and around Clapham Common: he living on the south side and Sarah and her husband Henry on the north side.

‘One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody’s language’ William Faulkner

Walking slowly while recording the unseen

Get behind the microphone to discover how one makes compelling audio recordings that engage both armchair listeners and those of us out and about on foot. We are delighted to have brought together four creatives who have travelled to remote places, revealed hidden histories, and captured the soundscapes and voices of past and present, to enable us to sit back in comfort or stride forward to listen to what is unseen.
