An evening with Bernard MacLaverty

Thursday 10th August 19:00 at Glasgow - Sauchiehall Street

We are very pleased to announce an evening with novelist, playwright and scriptwriter Bernard MacLaverty as he launches one of his best works yet 'Midwinter Break.'

 
Tickets are FREE but places must be reserved by calling 0141 332 9105 or by speaking to a bookseller in the shop.

 
‘Midwinter Break is a work of extraordinary emotional precision and sympathy, about coming to terms – to an honest reckoning – with love and the loss of love, with memory and pain. Full of scenes that are rendered with exquisite accuracy and care, allowing the most detailed physical descriptions to be placed against the possibility of a rich spiritual life, this is a novel of great ambition by an artist at the height of his powers.’ Colm Tóibín

 
Bernard MacLaverty novels include Lamb, Cal, Grace Notes and The Anatomy School. He has written five books of short stories. Bernard is a master storyteller, and Midwinter Break is the essential MacLaverty novel: accurate, compassionate observation, effortlessly elegant writing and a tender, intimate, heart-rending story – but it is also a profound examination of human love and how we live together, a chamber piece of real resonance and power. Forty years on from his first book, Bernard MacLaverty has written his masterpiece.
