WHEN Sunday, September 18th | 3.30PM
WHERE Christ Church
Paul Kingsnorth's fiction has been described by the London Review of Books as 'writing that is both powerful and singular – Beckett doing Beowulf', by the Times as 'strange and extraordinary' and by the Daily Telegraph as 'Robert Macfarlane rewritten by Cormac McCarthy.'
He will be discussing his new novel, Beast, the tale of an isolated man searching for truth on a wild moor, which was published in July by Faber and Faber. Paul's debut novel, The Wake, won the 2014 Gordon Burn Prize, was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, the Folio Prize and the Desmond Elliott Prize, and was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize. He is also the author of two non-fiction books and a poetry collection. He co-founded the Dark Mountain Project, a global network of writers, artists and thinkers in search of new stories for a world on the brink.
Nuala Ní Chonchúir is no stranger to Shorelines. She is a poet and novelist as well as a short story writer. Her latest book Miss Emily was published in 2015.
