Events Programme 2021

A Comedy of Terrors will be published in the UK on 2 April and in the USA in July. Sadly the Coronavirus crisis means we don’t know when ‘live’ events or travel tours will be possible again.

then you will receive a link for joining in nearer the time. If anyone has a favourite scene, let me know in advance (no promises). For copyright reasons these will not be recorded.

The readings will be at 7.00pm UK time and will be: Monday 22 March Master and God to set the scene, then Tuesday to Saturday The Ides of April, Enemies at Home, Deadly Election, the Third Nero and The Graveyard of the Hesperides. After a Sunday break, we’ll carry on from Monday 29 March with Pandora’s Boy, A Capital Death and the Grove of the Caesars, until we reach the new book on Publication Day, A Comedy of Terrors. Readings will last 30-40 minutes, with the option for questions at the end to be sent via the Chat button.

Monday 5 April 2.45 pm Times Radio
Monday 26 April 6.00 pm Suffolk Libraries DiscoveReads (a book group on Facebook; NB you have to register)
