In his new collection of stories, Jon McGregor harnesses the power of the flat fenland landscape, depicting a collection of intriguing characters and poignant events. A man builds a tree house by a river, in anticipation of the coming flood. A young woman is almost killed when a sugar-beet crashes through her windscreen. A boy sets fire to a barn.

These aren’t the sort of things you imagine happening to someone like you. But sometimes they do.

Using photos, videos, maps, and a suitcase full of props, writer and travelling salesman Jon McGregor will read a selection of stories from This Isn’t The Sort Of Thing That Happens To Someone Like You.

This exciting one hour short story performance promises to be deeply funny and full of meaning.
