answering audience questions.
The event will take place at the UWE's Glenside campus library,
Blackberry Hill, Fishponds, Bristol, from 12.00 noon until 1.00pm
next Wednesday 2nd October. The event is free of charge

Guardian reader reviews include:
As a recovering mental health service user listening to Nathan

The Shock the Fall is such a gripping, skilful novel, it's
difficult to believe it's Nathan Filer's debut.
