Mark Haddon, Daisy Johnson and KJ Orr In Conversation
Tuesday 19th July 19:30 at Oxford
Mark Haddon, is the author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and A Spot of Bother.
The tales in his lyrical and uncompromising new collection of short stories, The Pier Falls, take many forms—Victorian adventure story, science fiction, morality tale, contemporary realism—but they all showcase his virtuoso gifts as a stylist and the deep well of empathy that made his three bestselling novels so compelling.
Daisy Johnson’s debut collection of short stories, Fen, has been published to unanimous critical acclaim. The stories invite you take another look at the world around you. They are bleak, beautiful, witty and strange and together form a mesmerizing study of people and landscape.
K J Orr’s collection of short stories, The Light Box, is charged with the irrepressible human urge to connect in the face of disorientating change. An award winning short fiction writer whose work has been widely published, KJ Orr will be chairing this discussion.
