Two of Scotland’s dazzling literary talents read from their new work. Alan Bissett’s Death of a Ladies Man follows Charlie Bain, the school's most inspiring teacher by day but serial seducer of women at night as fuelled by art, drugs and fantasies he prowls the stylish bars of Glasgow. Dan Rhodes’ Little Hands Clapping blends entertaining storytelling and macabre imagination in a story of a German museum caretaker by day who at night enjoys the sound of silence, broken by the occasional crunch of a spider between his blackened teeth. Doctor Frohlicher, his dog Hans, a cast of grotesque and hilarious townsfolk and a crime so outrageous that it will shock the world completes the story.
