Blackwell’s welcome Julia Armfield and Missouri Williams to their shop to celebrate the release of Our Wives Under The Sea and The Doloriad – two beautifully strange and unsettling debut novels which are set to be among the most talked-about books of the year. They will be in conversation with the Centre for New Writing’s Kaye Mitchell.

Julia Armfield – Our Wives Under the Sea
Our Wives Under The Sea is the debut novel from the critically acclaimed author of salt slow. It’s a beautiful and strange story of falling in love, loss, grief, and what life there is in the deep, deep sea.

Missouri Williams – The Doloriad
Set the wake of a mysterious environmental cataclysm that has wiped out the rest of humankind, Missouri Williams’s debut novel is a blazingly original document of depravity and salvation. Gothic and strange, moving and disquieting, The Doloriad stares down humanity’s unbreakable commitment to life for better or worse.

Doors: 6.30, event starts: 6.45
Tickets are £5 or free when purchasing both books as a bundle for £24.99. Both books will also be available to purchase on the night and Julia and Missouri will be signing copies after the talk.

If you would like a signed copy but cannot make the event, please contact Blackwell’s on 0161 274 3331 or manchester@blackwell.co.uk and they can arrange this for you.
