Miwako Ogasawara will lead a discussion of The Last September by Elizabeth Bowen. The novel is a social satire of the dying Anglo-Irish Protestant Ascendency set around 1920, the period of violent uprisings of the ultimately successful Irish War of Independence against the ruling class which had dominated Ireland for about 300 years. It is also the story of a young woman coming of age against the ominous backdrop of brutal political violence by both the Irish Republican Army and the British security forces. In a discussion thread focusing on the 'luxurious beauty of the sentences and the flashes of unsuspecting dry humor,' Rohan Maitzen called it a 'combination of highly aestheticized language and social comedy, as if you are being batted around by [Virginia] Woolf on one side and [Jane] Austen on the other!'
