Mal Peet: The Murdstone Trilogy
Come along for an evening with multi-award-winning author Mal Peet as he discusses his new novel, The Murdstone Trilogy, a genre-bending Faustian anti-fantasy about a struggling writer pressured into attempting a sword-and-sorcery epic. Published through the newly-independent David Fickling Books, this is at once a trilogy and not a trilogy, a commentary on genre and an insight into the life of a writer.
Having garnered huge praise for previous books including Keeper and Life: An Exploded Diagram, Peet is renowned for the sheer quality of his writing and for pushing past conventional reader labels like YA, teenage and children's books.
Eloquent, engaging and occasionally controversial, Mal Peet is a stage presence to look out for. In conversation tonight with journalist, broadcaster and host of the Vintage podcast Alex Clark, this will be a night to remember about a book you won't forget.
