The Loney, set on England’s north-west coast, it is a tale that sucks you in like the tide and envelops you in a thick fog which keeps you guessing which way the story will turn next. Winner of the 2015 Costa First Novel Book Award.

‘It’s not just good, it’s great. It’s an amazing piece of fiction.’ — Stephen King

Novel Writers

Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.
