It's David Quantick!

Thursday November 6th - 6.30pm-8.00pm
What? Do you need any more persuading to come to the Big Green Bookshop?
David Quantick will be here, isn’t that enough for you?
Writer, critic, journalist and all round legend, David will be here to read from, discuss and answer questions about his new book “How To Write Everything”. There are few people more qualified to have penned this.
David really has written everything. As a television writer, he has written for The Thick Of It, The Day Today, Brass Eye, TV Burp and many other shows. He is also an award-winning writer on HBO's Veep and wrote the critically-praised Sky Arts Playhouse, Snodgrass. As a radio writer, he created Radio 4's One and Radio 2's The Blagger's Guide. His novel Sparks (described as 'excellent'; by Neil Gaiman) is a brilliant sci-fi comedy and his graphic series Louis Wain (created with Savage Pencil) was published in Alan Moore's Dodgem Logic.
As well as a series of music books and the official biography of Eddie Izzard, David wrote the Sunday Times best-seller Grumpy Old Men and has written for over 50 magazines and newspapers, from The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph to NME and Q. With Jane Bussmann, he created the world's first internet sitcom, The Junkies, and he is also the writer of several short films, including the highly-acclaimed Lot 13.
Tickets are just three quid and David will be happy to sign copies of the book, which will be available at the Big Green Bookshop on the night at just £9.99.
