Peter Benson’s first novel ‘The Levels’ won the Guardian Fiction Prize. This was followed by ‘A Lesser Dependency’, winner of the Encore award, and ‘The Other Occupant’, which was awarded the Somerset Maugham Award.
More recent novels include ‘Two Cows and a Vanful of Smoke’. He has also published short stories, screenplays and poetry, and his work has been adapted for television and radio.
Peter will be promoting the just published paperback edition of his novel ‘Isabel’s Skin’ a slick Gothic tale in the English tradition - a work of atmosphere and unease which creates a world of inhuman anxiety and suspense. Copies will be available to purchase and Peter will be signing all books sold.
Tickets on sale now: £2.50 (£1.50 for library members) and are available from the Ground Floor Help Desk at Central Library as well as from all other SBC Libraries.
