The Treacle Tap Book Club

  • The Treacle Tap 43 Sunderland Street Macclesfield, England, SK11 6JL United Kingdom (map)

For February, the Treacle Tap's Book Club has chosen not one, but two books - the choice is yours:

The Devil Rides Out by Dennis Wheatley
Set in 1930s London and the South of England, the Duc de Richleau and Rex van Ryn discover that their friend Simon Aaron has become involved with a cult of devil worshipers headed by the sinister Mr. Mocata. Following a daring rescue from a Grand Sabbat on Salisbury Plain, they take Simon to the country house of Richard Eaton and his wife, the Princess Marie-Lou, where they are besieged by unearthly forces, and discover the true purpose of Mocata's cult.

Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene
Our Man In Havana (1958) is a novel set in Cuba by the British author Graham Greene. He makes fun of intelligence services, especially the British MI6, and their willingness to believe reports from their local informants. The book predates the Cuban Missile Crisis, but certain aspects of the plot, notably the role of missile installations, appear to anticipate the events of 1962.

Free entry. New faces always welcome.
