Where : Waterstones Deansgate
Price : £3.00

Waterstones Deansgate are delighted to welcome the Man Booker Shortlisted author, Ottessa Moshfegh to Manchester for UK release of her novel, 'McGlue'. Join us on Tuesday 23rd May at 6:30pm to hear Ottessa in conversation about her work, before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of her books.


'They said I've done something wrong?...And they've just left me down here to starve. Haven't had a drop in days more so...Salem, Massachusetts, 1851: McGlue is in the hold, still too drunk to be sure of his name or situation or orientation - he may have killed a man. That man may have been his best friend. Now, McGlue wants one thing and one thing only: a drink. Because for McGlue, insufferable, terrifying memories accompany sobriety. A-sail on the high seas of literary tradition, Ottessa Moshfegh gives us an unforgettable blackguard on a knife-sharp voyage through the fogs of recollection.'
