Event Details

Adam Biles, Feeding Time

Thursday 24 November, 6.30pm

In conversation with Laura Keeling

Feeding Time is the story of a rebellion in an old people’s home – or perhaps, more pertinently, of a rebellion of people who just happen to be old. The characters in Feeding Time are as funny, annoying, sharp, deranged, loving, and infinitely various as everyone else. They deserve dignity, and they know it – which makes it all the more imperative that something is done about the appalling conditions in Green Oaks. This is a deeply humane book about the triumph of the human spirit, and a blast of rage against the dying of the light.

Chosen by The Observer as a Fiction Pick for 2016 and described as a ‘scintillating novel of ideas’, Feeding Time is a debut like no other: a blast of rage against the dying of the light. 

 

Novel Writers

£5/£3 concessions, booking advised

Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Extracts are available in advance but prior knowledge of the texts is not essential. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.

Organiser

Spike Island

Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design. Based in Bristol, UK, it is home to a gallery, café and working space for artists, designers and creative businesses. A vibrant hub for production, presentation and debate, we offer opportunities for audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion.

Our vision is to position art as central to society, which we do in two ways: by offering a high quality, challenging programme of exhibitions and events; and by fostering a dynamic and critically engaged community of artists and designers. Spike Island collaborates with local and regional partners as well as with international institutions, museums and universities.
