Join us for a reading of this unique novel

Join us for a public reading of this unique novel by Alistair Fruish. The Sentence is made up of just one sentence of 46,000 one-syllable words. It’s experimental but also a moving, beautiful and mind altering experience; a grime Under Milk Wood for the 21st century. A group of performers deliver a non-stop relay reading with no pause.

'Ali Fruish’s The Sentence is a breathless and head-first synaptic plunge into austere and yet excitingly fresh territory, effortlessly blending informed social protest, literary experiment and existential science fiction/horror from its first chivvying word to its single and memorable full stop. Compassionate, ingenious and more than modern, this book casts a new and startling light on the idea of doing time. Experience it in a single sitting like its guinea-pig narrator, as a not-so-short sharp shock, and it will stay with you forever like a penitentiary tattoo. A bold, bar-rattling gem.' Alan Moore

The event is hosted by Daisy Campbell
