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

    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.

    Love and Summer

    Sunday, 7th September at 11.30am at our shop on South End Road

    Join other book-lovers for a walk on Hampstead Heath to discuss William Trevor's beautiful novel Love and Summer.

    One summer in the 1950s, a young amateur photographer comes to the quiet Irish town of Rathmoye. He is noticed by Ellie Dillahan, a convent girl married to a local farmer, and soon an illicit love affair blossoms... Written in Trevor's masterful prose, and shining with profound compassion for his characters, Love and Summer is an entrancing, evocative and unforgettable novel.

    'There is so much in this quiet, strong, sure book, so much crystallised experience, literary assurance and human wisdom.' Susan Hill, Spectator

    Please join us at our shop on South End Road on Sunday 7th September at 11.30

    (Children, friends and dogs are all very welcome!)

  • Nina Stibbe
    joins us to discuss her new book
    Man at the Helm

    Thursday, 4th of September at 7pm at Burgh House

    It's 1970 and nine-year-old Lizzie Vogel has just moved to rural Leicestershire with her brother, sister and newly divorced Mum. The villagers, however, find this attractive woman with no husband to be something of a threat and are far from welcoming. When Lizzie and her sister are not even allowed to join the Brownies, they embark on a misguided mission to find a new man at the helm... This is a wildly comic and brilliantly perceptive story of family life in the wake of divorce.

    Nina Stibbe is the author of the hugely acclaimed memoir Love, Nina.Man at the Helm is her first novel.

    This talk takes place at Burgh House, New End Square, NW3 1LT. Tickets are £5 (including wine). They may be purchased from our South End Road shop in person, or with credit/debit card by telephone (0207 794 8206).
