Both Zoe Strachan and Louise Welsh are critically acclaimed novelists. Zoe Strachan’s dark, intimate novels capture the changeability and pulse of close relationships, and include the quirky Glasgow launderette-set Spin Cycle and the award-winning, heartfelt tale of bereavement and recovery, Negative Space. Louise Welsh is a celebrated crime writer who didn`t set out to become one! Author of the multiple-award winning The Cutting Room, and Tamburlaine Must Die, an imagined account of the final three days in the life of poet-playwright Christopher Marlowe, Louise`s most recent novel The Bullet Trick, set in Berlin, London and Glasgow, investigates a 30 year old murder from the perspective of magician and conjuror William Wilson. Zoe and Louise will be reading from their books, talking about their work, their successes and their future.
