Simon Brett - Tickled to Death
Tue 14/02/17 7:30 PM - 9:45 PM
Simon Brett on his career as a crime novelist
Simon is the crème de la crime, comparable, in crime writing, to Ha-ha-ha-Handel at his most sparkling in his oratorios: there is significant accomplishment of form. This is the hallmark of the most well-known Brett writings: for instance, the 'Charles Paris' mysteries, the 'Fethering' stories and the 'Blotto and Twinks' tales. While not entirely homologous with such a proposition as ‘writing is crime’, Simon’s subject this evening is his practice of combining crime and comedy, to create clever capers and witty thrillers.
All are welcome to attend.
