Novelist, essayist, memoirist and book and film reviewer Adam Mars-Jones will be at the shop to read from and talk about his latest book Box Hill (Fitzcarraldo). On his eighteenth birthday Colin, taking a walk on the eponymous Surrey hillside, stumbles across Ray, part of the biker community centred on Box Hill. Mars-Jones recounts the love story between the two men in his continuing exploration of the dynamics of desire and domination. ‘It is’ writes Margaret Drabble, ‘a characteristic Mars-Jones mixture of the shocking, the endearing, the funny and the sad, with an unforgettable narrator.’
