The amazing Hannah Berry will be here to launch her new Jonathan Cape graphic novel Livestock on Friday, May 26th from 7-9pm!
A new book from Hannah is something of an event around these parts: noirish crime drama Britten & Brülightly and quietly chilling horror Adamtine both come highly recommended. It’s been 5 years since the latter, and while she has popped up in various collaborations and contributions, we’ve sorely missed her distinctive voice on an extended narrative. Her rich, moody palette is incredibly evocative, and we look forward to seeing what she does with a bit of near-future dystopian satire!
“Excitement is building for this year’s Twammies and Clementine Darling is hotly tipped to win Best Female Singer and Political Spokesperson! The government is embarrassed about the leak of a confidential email exchange, but have you heard about Clementine’s new beau Devon Ayre? Yes, human cloning appears to have been legalised, but wasn’t Devon once together with Clementine’s arch rival Coral Jerome? And does it really matter what dubious corporate connections helped get this bill into place while Clementine and Coral are locking horns in a violent feud? Livestock is a razor-sharp satire on our relationship with the media from critically acclaimed graphic novelist Hannah Berry. In the fight for the public’s attention, why let public interest get in the way?”
Imagine! A world where celebrity and gossip are used to obfuscate grim political reality? Crazy!
Anyway, come on down to toast the launch of Livestock with Hannah, and get your copy signed while you’re at it! She’ll be here from 7-9pm on Friday, May 26th, but if you can’t make it down then drop us an email, email@example.com, to arrange a reservation or mail order.
