CONVERSATIONS AT THE CHAPEL – ABERGAVENNY – BLAKE MORRISON – WEDNESDAY 15 NOVEMBER – 7.30 – £13
Blake Morrison is an extraordinary chronicler of human frailty.
His most recent book, Two Sisters, is a memoir about his sister and half-sister. A companion publication is a latest collection of poems Skin and Blister.
Other memoirs include the ground-breaking and best-selling And When Did You Last See Your Father? and Things My Mother Never Told Me.
About Two Sisters, fellow writer Louisa Young has written:
“Harrowing, candid and clear-eyed, unflinchingly honest and critical. Two sad stories. The strangeness of families and the weight of the past. The guilt of being OK.”
The Guardian has commented:
“Morrison writes with a reckless respect for the truth.”
Other poetry includes Dark Glasses, The Ballad of the Yorkshire Ripper, This Poem and Shingle Street. He has also written four novels, including The Last Weekend and The Executor.
