On Saturday October 22nd The Real Story will host a special Manchester Literature Festival edition of our live show at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation. We welcome author Horatio Clare as headliner, supported as always by a selection of writers reading essays crafted especially for the event; Nija Dalal-Small, Sophie Parkes and Adam Farrer.
Horatio is the best-selling author of two memoirs. His first, Running for the Hills, won the Somerset Maugham Award and was described by The Sunday Times as “the prose equivalent of a collection of poems by Ted Hughes, or even Wordsworth.” His second book, Truant is “a stunningly-written memoir”, according to the Irish Times, which urged: “Give your stoner friend a copy, it might just save their life.” He has also published three books of nature and travel including, most recently, Orison for a Curlew, and writes acclaimed fiction for adults and young people. He presents essays and documentaries for BBC Radio and writes columns and criticism for the national press.
