Back to All Events

In conversation: Sam Fisher (author of fiction debut The Chameleon)

John is infinite.

He can become any book, any combination of words – every thought, act and expression that has ever been, or ever will be, written. Now 800 years old, John wants to tell his story.

Looking back over his life, from its beginnings with a medieval anchoress to his current lodgings beside the deathbed of a Cold War spy, John pieces together his tale: the love that held him together and, in particular, the reasons for a murder that took place in Moscow fifty years earlier, which set in train a shattering series of events...

Samuel Fisher’s debut, The Chameleon, is a love story about books like no other - weaving texts and lives in a family tale that leads the reader on an extraordinary historical journey, a journey of words as much as of places, and a gripping romance.

Sam (who is also the co-founder of bookshop Burley Fisher Books and indie publisher Peninsula Press) will be in conversation discussing not just his book, but also his writing process and experience of getting published for the first time.

Bound to be a fascinating evening and a must for any bookish-type in and around Norwich.
