Time & Location
About The Event
Members are very welcome to join Ian Reid for the launch of his new novel, which will be launched by Dr Paul Genoni, co-author of the acclaimed book Half the Perfect World.
About the book:
Released from Dartmoor Prison in 1889, a black man soon breaks back into it. Interned in the same jail in 1917, a conscientious objector seems to invite trouble and seek punishment. On a present-day Australian university campus, a Muslim student is mysteriously murdered.
The suspenseful action of A Thousand Tongues reveals how these enigmas are interlinked. It explores racial and sexual tensions, twists and turns of conscience, the limits of historical enquiry, and legacies of guilt and shame.
