Rescheduled talk by Sean Gregory

Come to another exciting event at the English-language Library: “Three Graves”.

When celebrated writer Anthony Burgess arrives in Manchester for a book signing, he encounters three spectres from his past. They refer to him as John Wilson, Our Jack, Mancunian lad and struggling composer. But is John Anthony Burgess Wilson in search of the real past or out to rewrite his history? And what of those left behind, and those bound to him for better or worse?

Sean Gregory is a writer based in the North of England. His first novel, Three Graves, was published by Bluemoose Books in September 2021. The novel was longlisted for the Bridport First Novel Prize. He won the Aesthetica Creative Writing Prize, for his short story ‘Louish & Benim’, which was also longlisted for the BBC Short Story Prize. Sean teaches creative writing at Leeds Arts University.

‘A bold, gripping and audacious debut. What its subject Anthony Burgess would make of it is uncertain, but he’d surely have to acknowledge its literary power and inarguable success as a novel’ – Benjamin Myers.

‘A novel of metaphysical strands and language games, grounded in a very human portrayal of the son of music hall performers who became a literary showman’ – Wes Brown, Literary Review, Autumn 2021

This talk is free and open to the public. No reservations necessary, but seating is limited. This event has been sponsored by the CIRPaLL, research group at the University of Angers.

Location: English-language Library in Angers
