Reading and Screening: Hard Shoulder and Radio On
Chris Petit will read from his new novel Hard Shoulder (Granta £14.99), an evocation of the grey avenues and pubs of Irish London at its most hopeless. Using and undermining the conventions of the thriller, Hard Shoulder stands alongside the best that the city has inspired. Accompanied by a screening of Petits mythic road movie Radio On (see cinema for details). Chris Petit is a novelist and filmmaker. His other films include Chinese Boxes and (with Iain Sinclair) The Falconer and Asylum. His first novel Robinson (£6.99) has just been republished by Granta.
