Ron Butlin: Billionaire's Banquet
Wed 26 April 2017, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
Blackwell's Bookshop and Salt Publishing invite you to celebrate the publication of Billionaire's Banquet, the much awaited new novel by Edinburgh author Ron Butlin.
About the Book
1985, Edinburgh. Thatcher's policies are biting deep - fat cats and street-kids, lovers, losers and the rest struggle to survive. Hume sets up a business catering for the rich and their ever-growing appetites. But by the new millennium, these appetites have become too demanding ...
Powerful, challenging and very funny, Billionaires' Banquet is an immorality tale for the 21st century.
