Event description

Description

John Boyne’s new novel is a seductive psychodrama about the boundless ambition of a brilliantly devious aspiring writer. Maurice Swift is handsome, charming, and hungry for success. The one thing he doesn’t have is talent – but he’s not about to let a detail like that stand in his way. After all, a would-be writer can find stories anywhere. They don’t need to be his own. Moving from the Amalfi Coast, where he matches wits with Gore Vidal, to Manhattan and London, Maurice hones his talent for deceit and manipulation, but the higher he climbs, the further he has to fall. Ladder to the Sky is at once a pacy thriller and a devastating satire on the contemporary literary landscape.
