Event description

Description

Evenings of literature, conversation, dinner and wine.

'A combination of fringe theatre, psychiatrist's couch, conversazione society and flirtation parlour, the Peirene salon is unlike any other literary gathering. It was intelletually stimulating but full of laughter, argumentative but friendly, seriously focussed on the Novel but without forgetting the Wine. And Meike Ziervogel -- gracious, beautiful and just slightly wicked -- is the best salonniere since Madame Geoffrin in 18th centruy Paris.' John Walsh, The Independent


2nd December 2017: Anthony Cartwright, author of Peirene NOW! No. 2, The Cut

The Cut is a Brexit novel. The story offers a fictional response to a complex issue. It is also a plot-driven page-turner by one of the most exciting novelists in the country.

Cairo Jukes, a boxer from Dudley, supports himself on zero-hour contracts. He has grown up among the canals – or the cuts – that web the Black Country like the open veins of an old industrial order. Then he meets Grace, a successful documentary film maker from London.

The Cut will not put you at ease. It describes a relationship built on misunderstandings, intolerance and guilt – one where each side desires something that the other cannot give.

‘A diamond-sharp novella…These are vividly imagined lives, rendered with the concise strokes of an experienced portraitist.’ Jude Cook, The Guardian

Born in Dudley in 1973, Anthony Cartwright is the author of four previous novels, most recently Iron Towns (2016). He has been shortlisted for various literary awards, and he has also published a collaborative novel with Gianluca Favetto, II giorno perduto (The Lost Day), released in Italy in 2015.


Doors open at 7.30pm. The evening starts with drinks, and the reading will commence at 8.15pm, followed by dinner and wine. Whiskey and coffee are served at 11pm.
