The (now online) book club for readers who don't always have time to read. Have you wanted to be part of a book club but don't always have the time or patience to finish a whole book? Hesitant to commit to a new author you’re not sure you’ll like? The Short Story Club is the club for you. Commitment is low, enjoyment is high, and you’re sure to discover some new authors and styles to explore.

How it works

Join our club…

Each fortnight we’ll let you know how to access a short story online so that you can read along with us. Read the story and then let us know what you think in our Wednesday evening video chats (register to to receive a meeting invitation from us on the day). 

Wednesday July 29th

Zadie Smith - The Embassy of Cambodia

"Who would expect the Embassy of Cambodia? Nobody. Nobody could have expected it, or be expecting it."

First published in the New Yorker, The Embassy of Cambodia is a rare and brilliant story that takes us deep into the life of a young woman, Fatou, domestic servant to the Derawals and escapee from one set of hardships to another. Beginning and ending outside the Embassy of Cambodia, which happens to be located in Willesden, NW London, Zadie Smith's absorbing, moving and wryly observed story suggests how the apparently small things in an ordinary life always raise larger, more extraordinary questions. You can read the story on The New Yorker's website.
