Billingham and Brookmyre are Indiscreet!
Coles Books is delighted to present an entertaining evening with authors Mark Billingham and Chris Brookmyre this summer - the date and venue are to be confirmed. The ticket price includes a light buffet supper and it is planned that drinks will be made available to purchase on the evening.
It’s always a delight when authors come together to celebrate the capricious spirit of creativity, and to show their profound respect for everyone who plays a part in their journey through the world of literature. However, there’s only so much of that you can stomach, so thank goodness there are at least a couple of authors who know that when you’ve had a few drinks, you’re good and ready for the dark side. More than ready for a spot of literary filth…
Mark Billingham and Chris Brookmyre have spent the last few years successfully performing a show where readings from their latest novels and the weighty discussion of genre are jettisoned completely in favour of cheap laughs and funny stories. These two bestselling thriller writers have plenty of comedy experience and have established a reputation as a literary double-act whose appearances are always hugely entertaining. Together, they lift the lid on the real world of being a writer. The angry letters from readers. The backstage shenanigans. The nightmarish personal appearances, and of course, the nutters. Oh my oh my…the nutters!
This cheeky, multimedia extravaganza, which culminates in the most linguistically robust game show to ever grace a stage, has already been a huge hit at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, at Aye Write in Glasgow, at the Cheltenham Literary Festival and at Bloody Scotland. Mark and Chris stand ready, willing and able to lower the tone at similar events all over the world.
Expect robust language, very robust language and at least one extremely disturbing story about a chicken.
Signed copies of Mark and Chris's books will be available to purchase on the night at a discounted price.
