We’re delighted to invite you to the launch of Krishan Coupland’s first collection of short stories When You Lived Inside The Walls and Other Stories on Thursday 9th February at 7pm at The Sir Garnet, 36 Market Place, Norwich NR2 1RD.
When You Lived… is at once dark and tender, mundane and extraordinary. The stories here speak of strange realities where a child takes to living in the walls with the friends who love her, a young man preserves the body of his beloved, who has returned from the dead, in a freezer in his garage, and sharing a daily cup of tea with a neighbour isn’t as simple as it seems.
This is a joint launch with the brilliant Neon Magazine (edited by Krishan) and promises to be a great night of readings, wine, rats, games, a raffle, and the opportunity to buy copies of the both When You Lived… and Neon.
The event is free to attend, but please do book a ticket so that we have an idea of numbers.
If you can’t make the launch you can still get your hands on a copy through our shop. Pre-order it HERE: www.stonewoodpress.co.uk
