This month for LBGT book club we’re reading Ely Percy’s Vicky Romeo Plus Jules from Edinburgh’s own Knights Errant Press!

Vicky Romeo Plus Joolz by Ely Percy is a genreblending queer tartan reply to the romcoms of the 80s, written in the style of an American–Italian gangster movie. Set in 2001, it is a romp through Glasgow’s gay scene, narrated by a young, working-class and incurably romantic butch-about-town.

It’s a plucky, on-the-nose, heart-mending comedy about a bunch of queer folks trying to find their way and going about life where not a single queer person dies. What’s not to love?!

The book club will be pretty informal in general. Like our other book clubs, Other Fruit will provide a free, friendly and gentle environment in which opinions can be shared and new appreciations discovered. There will be wine, curious minds and relaxed conversation. So come and join our warm bookish group – all are welcome.

(Readers don’t have to buy the bookclub book from the shop, however we do rely on those book sales to be able to keep the event & refreshments free; to pay our booksellers for their time prepping & running book clubs and to keep the lights on. Please do NOT buy your books from am_z_on, if you cannot afford to buy the book then PLEASE support your local library.)
