Launch of The Eleventh Letter by Tom Tomaszewski
The launch party for another brilliant book by the magnificent Dodo Ink Press.
Tom Tomaszewski joins us to celebrate the publication of his new novel The Eleventh Letter. 
Chris Katiwa, a Harley Street psychotherapist, finds himself trapped in his office by heavy snow. When a beautiful, enigmatic woman asks to take shelter with him, he finds himself drawn to her charisma. Discovering tapes concerning a murder trial from the 1980s, Chris and his mysterious guest listen to voices from the past as the night draws in and darkness falls.
Chris begins to wonder if the woman he once tried to defend is as innocent as he had thought. Was she involved in the Pisa killings, or were they work of the savage serial killer that became known as the Wolfman?
The Eleventh Letter is a ghostly, Lynchian tale that explores love and lies, murder and madness.
This is a FREE Event, but we'd be grateful if you could contact us if you plan to come along ( or phone us on 020 8881 6767).

The Handsworth Times by Sharon Duggal
We’re delighted to be hosting an event marking publication of Sharon Duggal’s The Handsworth Times, a powerful new novel set during the Birmingham riots.
It’s 1981. Factories are closing, unemployment is high, the NF are marching and the neglected inner cities are ablaze as riots breakout across Thatcher’s’ fractured Britain.
Mukesh Agarwal sits alone in the Black Eagle pub, unaware that a riot is brewing or that Billy, his youngest son, is still out on his bike ...A mile away, at home in Church Street, Anila, one of the three Agarwal girls, is reading Smash Hits and listening to Radio One as she sprawls across the bottom bunk, oblivious to the monumental tragedy that is about to hit her family.
But as the Agarwals face their own nightmares, family, pop music, protest, unexpected friendships and a community that refuses to disappear all contribute to easing their personal pain and that of Handsworth itself.
After the reading, discussion and q+a, Sharon will be very happy to sign copies of the book, which is published by the good people at Bluemoose Publishing and costs just £8.99.
