An Evening With Patrick deWitt
Wednesday 26th September 18:00 at Manchester - Deansgate
'Dizzyingly good, the world so weird and fresh. A triumph from a writer truly in the zone.'
-Maria Semple, author of Where'd You Go Bernadette
Patrick deWitt was shortlisted for the Man Booker prize with The Sisters Brothers which went on to win Canada's Governor General's Award. The comedy and pain deWitt brings into his novels have marked him out as a writer with a difference. In his latest, French Exit, deWitt navigates the relationship between a mother and son in a way only he knows how.
This event will be chaired by Luke Brown. Luke Brown is a novelist, editor and lecturer in creative writing at University of Manchester. His debut novel is My Biggest Lie, published by Canongate.
