Using photos, videos, maps, and a suitcase full of props, writer and travelling salesman Jon McGregor will tell a selection of stories from his new book, This Isn’t The Sort Of Thing That Happens To Someone Like You. These delicate, dangerous, and sometimes deeply funny stories tell of things buried and unearthed, of familiar places made strange, and of lives where much is at risk, much is hidden, and tender moments are hard-won.
Jon McGregor is the author of the critically acclaimed If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things and So Many Ways to Begin. He is the winner of the Betty Trask Prize and the Somerset Maugham Award, and has been twice longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. His latest book is This Isn’t the Sort of Thing That Happens to Someone Like You, published by Bloomsbury. He was born in Bermuda, grew up in Norfolk and now lives in Nottingham.
