Professional book discussion leader Susan Boyar discusses Shrines of Gaiety, by Kate Atkinson this month. Shrines of Gaiety transports us to the dazzling London of the Roaring Twenties in a whirlwind tale of corruption, seduction, and debts that have come due. 1926, in a country still recovering from the Great War, London has become the focus for a delirious new nightlife. Nellie Carter, the notorious - and ruthless - queen of a dazzling, seductive and corrupt new world in the clubs of Soho, finds her success breeding enemies as she faces threats from without and within, revealing the dark underbelly beneath Soho's gaiety.
