[4 (out of 5) stars]
This novel about an unusual book club was released just a little too late to make Richard and Judy's list of summer reads, but it's the novel that everyone will be talking about in a few weeks' time. The Lacuna Cabal is an idiosyncratic book club -- and not just because of its name. Its members meet in locations appropriate to the book being discussed (but rarely read), kidnap the authors they are fond of and re-enact their favourite passages. But the Cabal's days are numbered.
