About this event

Celebrate with us David Gaffney’s latest novel ‘Out of the Dark.’. Set in a block of flats on the yew tree estate between Walsall and West Bromwich, next to the M5/M6 intersection. Meet Daniel who divides his time between sitting on his balcony on the seventh floor of the block of flats at 69 Acacia Avenue gazing at the traffic on the motorway and obsessively re-watching an old film noir called Out Of The Dark which he believes was filmed in the West Midlands in the sixties. Join David for a reading, followed by a Q&A, of this gripping story about grief, obsession and duplicity told using a puzzle box of stories within stories that twist and turn at every opportunity.
