We are very excited for our event with Alan Johnson on Tuesday evening! The event is taking place at the @monmouthsavoy at 7pm and tickets cost £8.
Alan will be discussing his new book In My Life, a music memoir telling the story of his life through the music that has inspired him along the way. In My Life transports the reader to a world that is no longer with us - a world of Dansettes and jukeboxes, of smoky coffee shops and dingy dance halls. From Bob Dylan to David Bowie, from Lonnie Donnegan to Bruce Springsteen, all of Alan’s favourites are here.
But this isn’t just a book about music. In My Life adds a fourth dimension to the story of Alan Johnson the man.
Happy Friday all!

Discover the greatest Greek myth of all - retold by the witness history forgot.
When her city falls to the Greeks, led to victory by the godlike warrior Achilles, Briseis’ old life is shattered. Abducted and shipped to the Greek camp on the battleground at Troy, she goes from queen to captive, from free woman to slave, awarded to Achilles as a prize of honour. She’s not alone. On the same day, and on many others in the course of a long, bitter war, innumerable women have been wrested from their homes and flung to the fighters.
As told in The Iliad, the Trojan War was a quarrel between men - over Helen, stolen from her home and spirited to Troy, a voiceless female icon of male desire. But what of the women in this story, silenced by their fates? What words did they speak when alone with each other?
In this magnificent novel of the Trojan War, Pat Barker summons the voices of Briseis and her fellow women to tell this mythic story anew, foregrounding their experiences against the backdrop of savage battle between men. One of the great contemporary writers on war and its collateral damage, Pat Barker here reimagines the most famous of all wars in literature, charting one woman’s journey through the chaos of the Greek encampment, as she struggles to free herself and to become the author of her own story.
