An Evening with Colin MacIntyre (Mull Historical Society)
Monday 23rd May 19:30 - 21:00 at Glasgow - Byres Road
Introducing a dazzling new voice: a gloriously heartfelt, funny novel set on a Scottish island from musician Colin MacIntyre aka Mull Historical Society.
All islands have their secrets. This one has more than most. When Fingal McMillan rows out into the Atlantic never to return, his grandson Alexander is left with questions. What really happened to Alexander's mother? Was his grandfather trying to reach The Looming, a rock of local myth? And why have mysterious words appeared on the cliff by the bay?
Alexander is not the only local boy whose origins are clouded by mystery - mysteries which stretch back to Victorian times, when a pioneering travel writer alighted on Hebridean shores. But will the island give up its secrets? Or will Ivor Punch - the man who links the past to the present - take them to the grave?
Colin first rose to fame as an award-winning songwriter and musician: in his guise of Mull Historical Society, he has achieved chart hits and has performed tours worldwide, including with The Strokes, REM and Elbow. Now he adds award-winning novelist to the string of accolades with his debut title 'The Letters of Ivor Punch', a gloriously heartfelt and funny novel set on a remote Hebridean island. Through both music and written word, Colin is a natural storyteller. Join us for an evening of conversation and unplugged songs from his newly released, seventh MHS album, 'Dear Satellite'.
