Jonathan Cape and Gosh! Presents: Rain signing with Bryan Talbot and Mary M Talbot


The award-winning team of Mary & Bryan Talbot return with a stunning new graphic novel, Rain, and we’re thrilled to have them here signing copies on Saturday October 26th, 1-2pm!

Over the past 8 years or so UK comics legend Bryan Talbot and historian (and wife) Mary have created some truly landmark British graphic novels (in the truest sense of the term) with a body of work including Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes, Sally Heathcote: Suffragette (with Kate Charlesworth), and The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia. Now they look to continue that trend with Rain, a book which looks at big issues on an intimate scale.

From acclaimed writer/historian Mary M Talbot and graphic-novel pioneer Bryan Talbot comes Rain, a chronicle of the growing relationship of two young women, one an environmental activist, set against the backdrop of the disastrous 2015 floods in northern England.

The wild Brontë moorlands are being criminally mismanaged as crops are being poisoned, and birds and animals are being slaughtered. While the characters are fictional, the tragedy is shockingly real.

Bryan and Mary will be here signing on Saturday October 26th, from 1-2pm. If you can’t make it but would like one of their books signed, you can pre-order a copy on our webstore now for collection or mail order.
