'Before you could sort a city out, you had to clean up the source'. That is the challenge Lucy faces... For years she made that common mistake: her heart was blocked, she thought she was alone. Now, as predatory LeopCorp gets set to pounce on a bankrupt Uberdeen, her quest for fellow-resisters has to speed up pronto. Feisty Alison? Subtle anarchist Iris? Ruthless young Gwen? The big fisherman with a chip on his deck, the Cretan professor - or the smart anti-capitalist clowns? Perhaps the overcrowded Polish workers - or the wounded haunting stranger that has rolled back into town? Or is Lucy simply past it? Might as well retreat to Morocco and let GrottoLotto take over the streets for a new global bonanza...? Black political satire meets salty, funny love story. Strip The Willow reveals itself as a dance of vision, desire, plotting and despair. The apocalypse when it comes is pretty damn sharp, the tenderness real. A vivid, breathtaking tale, Strip The Willow is the long-awaited second novel by the author of Saltire award-winning Amande's Bed. Born in Aberdeen, John Aberdein has worked as fisherman, teacher and political campaigner in North-East Scotland, London, Fife, Hampshire, the West Coast and Orkney. This event is ticketed, but tickets are FREE. Tickets are available from the front desk at Blackwell, Edinburgh.
