Event description

Description

Join us to celebrate the publication of local author Tony Peake's new novel.

For one long, intense week in October 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis brought with it an East-West stand-off and the possibility of nuclear holocaust. On the other side of the globe, in Pretoria, a group of schoolboys scan the horizon for signs that the world is about to end.

Tony Peake was born in South Africa but has lived most of his life in London.

He is an acclaimed short story writer with work in many anthologies including The Penguin Book of Contemporary South African Short Stories, The Mammoth Book of Gay Short Stories and Best British Short Stories 2016.

He is the author of two novels, A Summer Tide (1993) and Son to the Father (1995), and Derek Jarman: A Biography (1999).
