Once again, we had a great time socializing and snacking during our traditional Christmas borrel. This year we met at Cafe Bakker with everyone charged with wearing their best “ugly sweater.” It was interesting to see what our members’ ideas were of an “ugly” sweater.
Despite the overcrowding around the Korte Heuvel that we were expecting, it was pleasantly cozy in Cafe Bakker where members shared their happiness of starting the holiday season and discussing Christmas and New Year’s plans.
A borrel was the perfect way to bid everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We have a new book for our winter season…
A little information about this thriller of a book:
Many years after their divorce, Susan Morrow receives a strange gift from her ex-husband. A manuscript (Nocturnal Animals) that tells the story of a terrible crime: an ambush on the highway, a secluded cabin in the woods; a thrilling chiller of death and corruption. How could such a harrowing story be told by the man she once loved? And why, after so long, has he sent her such a disturbing and personal message…?
Absorbing, terrifying, beautiful and appalling. I loved it… Unforgettable — Ruth Rendell
A superb and thrilling novel… Extraordinary — Ian McEwan
Tony and Susan is unbeatable. I was bowled over by this disturbing, bold novel * Observer *
Astute, cunning and thrilling in equal measure, this is one lost novel that deserves to be found by a whole new generation of readers * Independent on Sunday * I want to read it all over again… Not since Cormac McCarthy’s The Road have I been so gripped and unsettled by a piece of fiction — Sarah Waters Marvellously written – the last thing you would expect in a story of blood and revenge. Beautiful — Saul Bellow
Compelling… Mesmerizing… Absolutely irresistible * New York Times *
A nail-biter and a penetrating portrait of guilt and revenge * Sunday Times *
Tony and Susan was made into a movie, called Nocturnal Animals. The book can be found as either Tony & Susan as originally published, or with the title Nocturanl Animals to link it to the film.
Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season in the meantime, a good start of 2018 – I hope to see you on January 10th!
