Do please join me to launch my new novel, THE DEAD BEAT, at LOOKING GLASS BOOKS, Quartermile, Edinburgh, Thursday 1st May, 6.30pm.
I’ll be in conversation with Allan Guthrie blethering about the book, reading briefly, answering questions, signing books and playing a couple of grunge covers, for reasons that will become apparent if you come along. I am led to believe there will be booze.
It’s set in Edinburgh and is about a young woman called Martha who gets a job as an obituary writer. Things go badly wrong very quickly. As you might expect for one of my books. It contains death, electroconvulsive therapy, someone swearing at a bird, female wrestling, obituaries, Kurt Cobain, house fires, attempted suicide, sex in the street and Teenage Fanclub. Not necessarily in that order.
