LAUNCH: ‘Writer’ by JM Burgoyne
May 5 - 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
“If M.R. James or Edgar Allan Poe wrote Don Quixote and set it in the wild west, Writer might be the result.”
Please join us for the launch of Writer, the highly-anticipated debut novel from local girl and friend of the shop Jax Burgoyne!
Here’s the blurb…
‘I do not have a future, and I do not want dreams. My dreams are stories, written by a machine. And I will not think of her.’
Luke Kierley has visited the writer and asked it to exorcise from him all memory of her. Now he has no idea who she was and he must try to find a way to live with a bleeding hole in his memory.
Told in a unique voice that recalls southern gothic, classic horror, and frontier literature, Writer is like nothing you have read before. Jax writes virtuosic prose — this is a striking and unforgettable meditation on free-will, love, and the lengths we’ll go to avoid pain.
Jax will read from her book and then there’ll be a short Q&A session with Sam Ruddock of Story Machine (Jax’s publisher), then time for audience questions.
Don’t miss it!
