No Alibis

Remember when David and Saul joined forces to do battle with the enemies of Jehovah at Mt Gilboa? And remember when the Sex Pistols played at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester and everyone there subsequently formed a band? And remember when JD Salinger and Ernest Hemingway liberated the bar of the Ritz Hotel in August 1944? Of course you do, you're a well read man/woman about town. Well on Thursday night for one night only Declan Burke and I request the pleasure of your company for a similar epoch defining event when we read from our new novels at No Alibis Bookshop in Belfast.
There will be fireworks, sparklers, possibly glo sticks. If things go badly Dec and I will slip to the panic room or we will perform Abbot and Costello's Who's on First routine...Do come along. That's No Alibis Bookshop, Belfast, Thursday the 18th of August at 6.00 p.m.
And if you want to hear my interview yesterday with Kim Lenaghan on BBC Radio Ulster's Arts Extra you can do so here.
