Strange that one should launch a book called Brixton Nights in Putney, but that is what is happening on Friday 26 August.
Poet and author Amy Tollyfield is promoting her first novella in Waterstones, Unit 5, 5 Putney High Street, SW15 1TW, between 6.45 and 8.30pm.
Brixton Nights charts the life of Christina, a young lesbian woman, who once lived in Brixton and now lives in Hull.
It follows a tempestuous journey through young adulthood and into early adult life, including many losses and heartaches along the way.
Working-class, female and gay, Christina has the odds stacked against her, before she and her rebellious brother Kyle are given a new home with a kind lady named Simone.
Brixton Nights is a coming-of-age novella, telling a story of truth, pain and family.
At the event Amy Tollyfield will read the first three chapters of her novella and talk about why she chose to write it.
