In August the Village Literary Club will read Shirley Hazzard`s now classic novel "The Transit of Venus" (1980, 337pp). "The Transit of Venus" won the National Book Critics` Circle Award and was a finalist for the National Book Award in 1980. It is a novel that has endured, one that readers remember and want to return to. Highly plotted, complex, tragic and playful, it follows two Australian sisters through the decades as they make their lives in post-war London. Considered a "great and tragic love story," it also tackles science (astronomy), international politics, and the gender wars. Fans of Hazzard comment most on her wonderful writing: "her prose is magic on the page"; reading Hazzard is "like walking in an enchanted garden."
