About In Conversation with Alan Bissett
Ranked as The 46th Hottest Man in Scotland by The Daily Record, Alan Bissett is a male author, who wrote and performed a One Woman Show. He sprang onto the Scottish literary scene in 2001 with the zeitgeist-busting Boyracers, a Scottish novel about being young, naive, and getting taken on a sinister adventure. Later novels include Death of a Ladies Man, and Pack Men - a novel which, in the words of The Guardian, ‘casts an unsparing eye over the sectarian pollution of Scottish society.’
As well as writing, Bissett is a performer and a teacher of Creative Writing at Leeds University. His play The Pure, The Dead and The Brilliant, was endorsed by fellow author Irvine Welsh – in spite of Alan’s assertion in Death of a Ladies Man that ‘trainspotting was wrong.’ Bissett is a contemporary Scottish writer, and a chronicler of one of the most exciting times in Scottish History (Last Year’s Referendum). He once tried to read War and Peace, but the internet got in the way. The conversation will feature warmth, tips on how to write, and good old fashioned banter. (Capacity 50)
Venue: Currie Library, 210 Lanark Road West,
