    BOOK LOVERS UNITE A Life Discarded with special guest author ALEXANDER MASTERS

    Today

    Lots of stories end up in the bin, abandoned by their authors for some unknown reason. Some narratives probably belong there, others we may wish we’d got to read first. For one night only, we bring you one of these elusive stories, saved from the skip by award-winning biographer Alexander Masters.“A Life Discarded” is a biographical detective story about 148 dusty notebooks, discovered languishing in a skip in Cambridge. Each book is a small part of an intimate, anonymous diary, beginning in 1952 and ending half a century later, just a few weeks before the volumes were thrown in the bin.

    BOOK LOVERS UNITE The Transmigration of Bodies with special guest author YURI HERRERA

    01/06/2016

    We are delighted to welcome to the Bibliotherapy Room one of Mexico's most exciting contemporary voices, Yuri Herrera. Yuri's striking super-new novella (so new it's not officially published until 7th July) is "The Transmigration of Bodies"; a pulpy fiction set in a putrid, decaying landscape where a vicious plague is quickly killing off the city's population. When two young adults from feuding families are taken hostage, their situation looks even more desperate. Enter, The Redeemer “- a hard-boiled hero, who ventures out into the city's underbelly to broker peace. Here at Mr B's, we love Yuri for his stark, dark writing style, his punchy characters and his strange, but wonderful settings. Mr B's Tom named Yuri's debut novel “Signs Preceding the End of the World” – a gutsy tale of a young Mexican girl who crosses the border in search of her brother - as one of his favourite reads of 2015 and is just as excited about Yuri's new narrative.
