Gliterary Lunch November 25th 2010

This is a lunch with a difference which will take place on November 25th 2010 at Oran Mor, from 12pm to 3pm

The format is that you have a starter with your pre lunch refreshment, then you eat your main course followed by a reading from one of the authors, followed by some questions. Then you get your pudding, the second author speaks and then you get to have the books signed. Great format which allows for lots of chat over lunch, so take your friends!

Caro Ramsay was born in Glasgow and now lives in a village on the West Coast of Scotland.

She is widely recognised as one of the most significant new voices in the crime genre. This is her third DI Anderson and DS Costello novel.

Praise for Caro Ramsay

‘Many shivers in store for readers, followed by a shattering climax’
The Times

‘Ramsay handles her characters with aplomb, the dialogue crackles and the search for the killer has surprising twists and turns’

The Plot

A bitterly cold February in Glasgow. A body of a criminal, his face hideously disfigured, is discovered hanging from a rope in the attic of a deserted tenement…

Investigating officers DI Anderson and DS Costello believe the dead man to be a suspect, in a decade old case involving rape and attempted murder. But what has happened to the dead man’s accomplice, ‘Mr Click’?

With the discovery of another young woman who has been brutally attacked, detectives Anderson and Costello realise this terrifying psychopath has started working once more. For Mr Click has developed a taste for his bloodthirsty trade. And to satisfy his lust he will strike again and again…

‘Arabella is such a funny and charming person she talks about herself and these issues in a really light-hearted and entertaining way.’
Harper Collins

The Plot

Lumped into ‘the too fat for potatoes group’ by her mother, carefree eating isn’t something Arabella Weir had much experience of growing up.

Written with startling frankness, Arabella unravels her own eating history in this humorous appraisal of our attitudes towards eating disorders and obesity. Not easy for someone who still can’t be alone unsupervised in a room with a packet of chocolate biscuits.

Recounting stories of unhinged mothers and callous doctors, mystery-meat suppers, and egg custard battles with calculating boyfriends’ mothers, this candid memoir vividly recreates a childhood and adolescence marred by the social embarrassment of being marked as different simply due to your weight.
