You are invited to join novelist and historian Richard Francis at the Halesworth Bookshop on Friday 21 January at 7:30pm, where he will introduce and read from his most recent novel, Laura Laura.
An elderly academic on his way home from the cinema is accosted by a homeless woman. So begins a nightmarish – and comic – journey. The problem with exploring the past, Gerald begins to see, is that there are an infinite number of ways to travel through it.
Very vintage Francis . . . everything becomes so strange, and so funny. – Tessa Hadley.
