Event description

Description

Waterstones Birmingham would like to invite you to an evening with Chris Rose discussing his new novel, Who's Who When Everyone Is Someone Else.

In an unnamed Middle European city, an unnamed writer—the author of The Biographical Dictionary of Literary Failure—has arrived to give a series of lectures at an unnamed university on the subject of ‘forgotten books’. He's agreed to the lectureship because he wants to visit the grave of his favourite writer, and because he's yearning for distraction from the fact that the love of his life has recently left him.

But the professor who invited him—also unnamed—isn't there. His location, and the reason he invited the writer, are a mystery.

C. D. Rose is the author of the satirical book The Biographical Dictionary of Literary Failure (Melville House) and is an award-wining short story writer whose work has appeared in Granta and elsewhere. He currently teaches at the University of East Anglia, where he also earned an MFA in writing.
