Venue: Caught by the River, on Sunday.

David Keenan is a writer, music journalist and music maniac. His acclaimed debut novel This Is Memorial Device is a compelling evocation of the driven dreamers who populated the bands of post-punk Britain. Irvine Welsh: “It captures the terrific, obsessive, ludicrous pomposity of every music fan’s youth in an utterly definitive way.” John Niven, author of Kill Your Friends: “Dream-shaped, intoxicating and brilliant. A hymn to small-town energy and intelligence. An anthem for ‘shroomed youth.” David will be talking about his novel with the writer, broadcaster and CBTR regular Emma Warren.
