City Reads, Edinburgh Central Library’s events series, kicks off its 2010 programme with one of the most interesting and innovative contemporary writers around. A L Kennedy’s remarkable collection of short stories, What Becomes, shows exactly what becomes of the broken-hearted – and she does so with the enormous human compassion, wild leaps of humour, and the brilliantly original linguistic skill that distinguishes her as one of Britain’s finest writers. Come along to see a virtuoso close-up – Kennedy will be reading and discussing her work, in detail, and answering questions from the audience. Chaired by writer and critic Lesley McDowell. (toshie)
