Nicholas Shakespeare’s novels, amongst them The Dancer Upstairs and The Vision of Elena Silves, have often traced the stories of ordinary people, placing them against a backdrop of international and political upheaval. This sense of context shines through in his new collection, Stories from Other Places, in which he showcases his fascination with connection and disconnection and cultural misunderstanding. The stories draw on people and places from around the world – from the faded glamour of 1930s Bombay to early 20th century Bolivia.
His blend of storytelling and acute observational skill have made him one of the country’s most highly regarded authors – do join us in the bookshop for what promises to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
