Philip Terry and Ken Edwards Reality Street book launches

16 May

if p then q author Philip Terry launches his new Reality Street publication along with Ken Edwards.

REALITY STREET launches two books in London next week:

PHILIP TERRY: tapestry

Taking as its starting point marginal images in the Bayeux Tapestry, which have been left largely unexplained by historians, Terry retells the story of the Norman Conquest from the point of view of the tapestry’s English embroiderers. Combining magic realism and Oulipian techniques, this is a tour de force of narrative and language.

KEN EDWARDS: Down With Beauty

A series of linked dialogues, dramatic monologues and short fictions exploring the themes of exile, the aftermath of war, paranoia, improvised music and nothingness. The collection is completed with the full text of Nostalgia for Unknown Cities, previously published separately.

Both authors will read from their books.

21st May, At the Blue Bus, 7.30pm at The Lamb (in the upstairs room), 94 Lamb’s Conduit Street, London WC1, £5/£3 conc

The books will be on sale at the special launch price of £10 each.
