Everything's Fine, the debut novel from Socrates Adams, will get its official launch at Blackwell's on January 27th.
Socrates was a key part of Manchester's influential literature night No Point In Not Being Friends. He blogs at Chicken & Pies and last year blew our socks off with a story called Wide And Deep on Metazen.
Nightjar Press's Nicholas Royle describes him as a writer who hits "notes of absurdity and tenderness at the same time". Everything's Fine is a remarkable read and is the second title from the publishing house Transmission Print.
The launch will start at 6.30pm at Blackwell's on Oxford Road on Friday, January 27th. There will be a reading or three, there will be booze and there will be plenty of copies of the book for you to buy and get signed / framed.
If you can't wait until the official launch, Socrates is headlining Bad Language at the Castle Hotel at 7.30pm on Wednesday January 25th. We can't recommend that night enough, although if you don't come to our event too, our heavies will have you breathing through a tube.
("Tube". That's relevant. If you want to know why, you'll have to buy the book.)
