October 9th 2014 at the Lansdown, Clifton Bristol 8pm. Anna Freeman reads from her debut novel, The Fair Fight which won the Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize 2013. ‘Hugely exciting, I loved it.’ Sarah Waters.
The Fair Fight is a raucous and intoxicating tale of courage, revenge and female boxing. Bristol, 1799. In a warren of streets nestled in the filth of the bustling city is a brothel called The Convent. Within this gaudy, bawdy space is born Ruth, wholly plain and fairly unremarkable and by no stretch suitable for the life of prostitution.
- Also featuring readings from Bristol and Bath novelists.
- Mike Manson will read from his book about the Bristol Riots in 1831.
- Lesley Gillilan
- Duncan Bonner will give tips on performing aloud for writers.
Tickets £3 on the door.
