Brian Kimberling is a promising new voice in literature and winner of the Janklow & Nesbit Bath Spa Prize. In his novel Snapper, Kimberling’s distinctly American subject matter is shown through detached yet affectionate eyes that bridge the gap between Britain and the idiosyncratic world of Southern Indiana. Snapper tells the story of professional birdwatcher, Nathan Lochmueller, whose thoughts are divided between the habits of the birds he surveys and the tantalisingly unattainable Lola.
Kimberling’s sense of humour is rich with self-irony and introspection which is the perfect tone to convey the conflicting emotions of a man towards the place and people that made him who he is. Join us for this unique opportunity to see a brilliant new writer at the start of his career.
