Journalist & debut novelist Tabitha Lasley discuss the origins of her new book, Sea State, which explores the lives of North Sea oil riggers. ‘Offshore’ is a way of life for generations of British workers, primarily working-class men, but is also a potent metaphor for wider social issues we often fail to confront – identity, class, masculinity, the fragility of financial security and the transactional nature of desire. Sea Scape is a candid and personal account of the lives of those offshore oil workers, exploring issues of rootlessness and the search for home.

A book signing with the author will be available through the festival bookseller, Blackwell's following the event.
