HOTEL SORRENTO
 
By Hannie Rayson
 
 
25th Sept - 3rd Oct 2015
 
 
Hilary lives in seaside Sorrento with her father and sixteen-year-old son; Pippa is visiting from New York and Meg returns from England with her English husband. Three sisters, reunited after 10 years in different worlds, again feel the constraints of family life. It is Meg's semi-autobiographical novel, recently short-listed for the Booker prize, which overshadows their homecoming.
