Another remarkable coming together of two brilliant British and Swedish authors. The award-winning poet and novelist John Burnside has received huge acclaim for his novels Devil's Footprints and Glister, and for his new poetry collection The Hunt in the Forest. For this special event he joins Klas Östergren, one of the leading figures of Swedish literature for the past thirty years, whose cult classic Gentlemen was published in English for the first time in 2008. He now returns with The Hurricane Party, the latest in his Myths collection.
