‘Eccentric, charming, maddening and very, very funny’–Nick Hornby


Join us this Thursday, Sept 21 7.30, when West Hampstead author Anthony McGowan will be treating  us to a talk on his latest book The Art Of Failing.

Best known for his award-winning children’s books, Anthony’s latest oeuvre finds him in hilarious form as he details the first world challenges of his life as a middle aged chap around Whamp. You’ll laugh as he is haunted by endless tiny humilations, you’ll snigger as he struggles to resurrect the corpse of his literary career, you’ll chortle as he is ensnared by his loving yet perplexing marriage. ‘If cringeworthy embarrassment were a superpower, Anthiny would be an Avenger,’ says fellow author Matt Haig.

Entry is free, but please let us know if you’re planning to attend
