“City Reads is Brighton & Hove’s annual ‘big read’ for adults. This year, people across the city have been reading, sharing and discussing Paul McVeigh’s astonishing debut,The Good Son. Set during the Troubles in 1980s Belfast, it’s an astute, assured and achingly funny novel about the complex nature of innocence and guilt. Paul McVeigh has written plays, comedy and short stories – he is also co-founder of London Short Story Festival. Join him in as he discusses his inspiration for the novel in this final event marking the culmination of City Reads 2016.”
I’ll be reading from The Good Son and will be interviewed by novelist and columnist Laura Lockington.
