The Quiet Place Book Club: 'Approval' by John D. Rutter

Thursday 25 November 2021, 8.00PM

Join us for the November meeting of The Quiet Place Book Club, where we will discuss Approval (Saraband, 2021) by John D. Rutter. 

Following years of disappointment, David and Cici decide to embark on the journey of adoption–a decision that casts the two in a world of trapping bureaucracy. To meet the requirements, David finds himself forced to revisit the otherwise repressed, uncharted territories of memory. Approval, winner of the 2020 Northbound Book Award, invites the reader to decide: "Would you approve?"

“John Rutter's Approval is many things at once. A powerful meditation on judgement. A transfixing fable of a Kafka-esque application process. A complex tragedy about fatherhood. But it's also a simple, affecting and beautifully wrought story of one couple's journey towards what they most desire–a child–and the cost of reaching out for one. A hugely promising debut.” –Rodge Glass
