Escape Routes with Naomi Ishiguro
Tue 11 Feb 2020
7:00pm at Mr B's
Tickets include author interview and signing, a glass of wine and a 15% discount on any books in the shop on the night.
We’re over the moon to be welcoming debut author (and former Mr B’s team member!) Naomi Ishiguro back to the shop. On February 11th she’ll be introducing us all to the marvelous box of delights that is ‘Escape Routes’, her first short story collection.
Be prepared to see the world just a little bit differently, and the extraordinary in your own everyday. Within these pages you’ll meet a kid who dreams of becoming a magician and encounters a Brighton seaside fortune-teller. You’ll spend time with a pair of newlyweds who find their relationship unsettled by the presence of an over-sized stuffed bear, as well as with a rat-catcher, summoned by a new king to his palace over-run with rats. Brimming with curiosity and invention, the stories in ‘Escape Routes’ follow characters who – with child-like wonder or through darkness and peril – seek their own paths to liberation.
We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Naomi back. Join us as we chat to her about magic in unlikely places, storytelling and the escape routes we all create for ourselves.
