‘Not since Faulkner have I read American prose so bristling with life and particularity.’
–J M Coetzee
“a worthy successor to William Faulkner and Toni Morrison” – Sandra Newman for The Guardian
“McLean writes at times with the hyper-keen vividness of nightmare: not surrealism but a kind of American expressionism, like a darker, gristlier Donald Barthelme – grotesque, comic and unsettling” – David Hayden for The Guardian
We are delighted to be hosting an event with Robin McLean, an American writer who is revitalising the Western genre and drawing favourable comparisons with writers such as Cormac McCarthy, Denis Johnson, Flannery O’Connor and more. Published in the UK by the brilliant Indy publisher And Other Stories, we are very excited to hosting a writer who is one of the most exciting new authors in a long time.
Join us from 6pm for a 6:30 start. Tickets are £5, which includes a glass of wine or a soft drink and £2 off the book.
