Description

NOVEL LONDON RETURNS TO WATERSTONES IN COVENT GARDEN!

Come and join us on our monthly literary night where we bring people into bookshops; connect writers with readers and have an evening of entertainment and inspiration!

Two novelists will be reading out the opening chapters of their novels, followed by a Q&A session.

ROHAN QUINE is an author of literary fiction with a touch of magical realism and a dusting of horror, celebrating the beauty, darkness and mirth of this predicament called life, where we seem to have been dropped without sufficient consultation ahead of time.

Before writing, he spent a decade in New York, where he ran around excitably, saying a few well-chosen words in various feature films such as Zoolander and TV shows such as Oz (see www.rohanquine.com/those-new-york-nineties). His novel The Imagination Thief is published in paperback, and as an ebook including links to film/audio/photographic content: see www.rohanquine.com/press-media/the-imagination-thief-reviews-media for some nice reviews in The Guardian, Book Muse, indieBerlin and elsewhere. His four novellas – The Platinum Raven, The Host in the Attic, Apricot Eyes and Hallucination in Hong Kong – are published in paperback as The Platinum Raven and other novellas, and as four separate ebooks.

See www.rohanquine.com/press-media/the-novellas-reviews-media for reviews of these novellas, including by Iris Murdoch, James Purdy, Lambda Book Report and New York Press. His upcoming novel The Beasts of Electra Drive, a prequel to the above-mentioned five tales, will be published on 11 April 2018.
