Book Club Discussion: The Keeper of Lost Things

Welcome to the Book Club discussion for The Keeper of Lost Things: A Novel By Ruth Hogan. Below is a list of discussion questions to get the conversation started. We are excited to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. Feel free to answer all the questions, or pick and choose a few questions to discuss!

  • How would you describe Laura? Why has intimacy been such a problem for her? How does owning Peardew’s house affect her? In what way does she become an agent of change and redemption?
  • Talk about the tragedy for Anthrony Peardew of losing his beloved Theressa and the effect it has had on his life. What is the impetus for his compulsion to collect lost things?
  • Which of his imagined stories about lost items do you find most engaging—the blue jigsaw or the white umbrella, perhaps?
  • How does the story of Eunice and Bomber relate to Laura and Anthony’s story? Did you find the two plot strands difficult to juggle, perhaps too distracting? Or do the two tales enhance one another?
