  • Graham Swift
    joins us to discuss his new book
    England and Other Stories

    Tuesday, 22nd July at 7pm in Marylebone High Street

    In Discussion with K.J. Orr

    These twenty-five new stories mark Graham Swift's return to the short form after seven acclaimed novels and confirm him as a master storyteller. They unite into a richly peopled vision of a country that is both a crucible of history and a maze of contemporary confusions.

    K.J. Orr's stories have been shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award and the Bridport Prize.

    This talk takes place at Daunt Books, 83 Marylebone High Street London W1U 4QW at 7pm.
    Tickets are £8 and include a glass of wine, 20% off the speaker's books and 20% off supper on the night at Hardy's Brasserie and Wine Bar.

    The Grass is Singing

    Sunday, 3rd August at 11.30am at our shop on South End Road

    Join other book-lovers for a walk on Hampstead Heath to discuss Doris Lessing's bold first novel, The Grass is Singing. It is Southern Africa in the 1940s and Mary Turner has been found murdered on her verandah; the houseboy has admitted his guilt, but his motive remains a mystery. As Lessing tells Mary's story, from its miserable beginning, through glimpses of hope to its tragic conclusion, she pens a vivid and affecting portrait of a woman's life, and also of a civilisation in crisis. Tackling notions of colonialism, feminism and psychology head on, The Grass is Singing is a remarkable, very powerful novel.

    'Original and striking ... full of those terrifying touches of truth, seldom mentioned but instantly recognised.' - New Statesman

    Please join us at our shop on South End Road on Sunday 3rd August at 11.30
