James Buchan & Alex Preston: Literary Time Travel

Brace yourself to travel back to 18th century Britain. James Buchan’s A Street Shaken By Light is the swashbuckling tale of a young Scot, William Neilson, who leaves Edinburgh in 1720 in search of his fortune, encountering shipwrecks and skulduggery. In Alex Preston’s Winchelsea, it’s 1742 and Goody Brown, aching to avenge her father’s murder, joins a gang of smugglers. Join us and Stuart Kelly to discuss writing adventures that make the pulse race.
