    Created, written and directed by Annie, The Book Group first aired on Channel 4 in 2002, quickly drawing a cult following.

    American Clare Pettengill, newly arrived in Glasgow, starts up a book group in order to make some new friends. The group consists of three unhappy European football wives, a pretentious drug-addict student, a closet-homosexual football enthusiast, and a kind and gentle struggling author in a wheelchair.

    Each week they meet to read and discuss a new book, which always affects or influences each of the group's lives in some way.
