This week, my guest will is the fantastic Tony Williams.
Tony is a writer based in Northumberland. His novel Nutcase is a retelling of the medieval Icelandic Saga of Grettir the Strong set in present-day Sheffield. He has also published a book of flash fiction, All the Bananas I’ve Never Eaten, which won Best Short Story Collection at the Saboteur Awards. His poetry books have been shortlisted for the Portico, Aldeburgh and Michael Murphy Prizes, and his pamphlet All the Rooms of Uncle’s Head was a Poetry Book Society pamphlet choice. He is Associate Professor of Creative Writing at Northumbria University.
Tony will be doing a launch event for Nutcase in Manchester on Thursday 28th September, 6pm, at MMU Writing School.
I’ll be talking to Tony about Nutcase, sagas, flash fiction and Sheffield. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
