Join Andrew Miller on a Romanticist journey through the winds of time, before exploding into the violence of early 19th century Britain. Andrew will read from his latest work, Now We Shall Be Entirely Free – a meditation on male violence, the legacy of conflict and the price of freedom – ahead of an audience Q&A.

The author of eight critically-acclaimed novels, Andrew Miller scooped the James Tait Black Memorial Award for Fiction, the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and Italy’s Grinzane Cavour prize for his first work, Ingenious Pain. His 2011 novel Pure won the Costa Book of the Year award, and Oxygen was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2001.BOOK NOW
