Another evening of magnificence at the Big Green Bookshop

Tuesday May 20th 7.00pm 
An Evening with Emma Jane Unsworth

We are well pleased that Emma Jane Unsworth will be here at the bookshop on Tuesday May 20th.
Emma’s  a journalist and won the Betty Trask Award for her novel Hungry, the Stars and Everything. Her short story 'I Arrive First' was included in The Best British Short Stories 2012.

Her new novel, Animals has just been published and is rightly getting a whole load of people very excited indeed. Described by Caitlin Moran as “Withnail with Girls”, it’s a hilarious, moving and refreshingly honest tale of how a friendship can become the ultimate love story.

 You know how it is. Saturday afternoon. You wake up and you can't move.
I blinked and the floaters on my eyeballs shifted to reveal Tyler in her ratty old kimono over in the doorway. 'Way I see it,' she said, glass in one hand, lit cigarette in the other, 'girls are tied to beds for two reasons: sex and exorcisms. So, which was it with you?'

Laura and Tyler are best friends who live together, angrily philosophising and leading each other astray in the pubs and flats of Manchester. But things are set to change. Laura is engaged to teetotal Jim, the wedding is just months away, and Tyler becomes hell-bent on sabotaging her friend's plans for a different life.

Emma will be here to read from her book, answer questions and maybe more....
These is a FREE event, but due to the demand likely, please get in touch with the bookshop to reserve a place in the audience.
Refreshments? Yes, we’ll have some.
