Gregory Norminton headlines Bad Language Manchester

31 May 2017 - 7.30PM

We're thrilled that Gregory Norminton will be the headliner of the next Bad Language open mic night in Manchester.

Gregory has had several novels published by Sceptre, the imprint which is also home to Melvyn Bragg and David Mitchell, and has a fifth novel, The Devil’s Highway, coming out next year. His stories have appeared on BBC Radio 4 and he is no stranger to BBC Radio 3’s The Verb. When he’s not being broadcast to the world, he lectures in creative writing at MMU.

It will be a celebration of his new collection, The Ghost Who Bled (Comma Press), which contains short fiction that spans centuries and continents, from deeply insecure time travellers to medieval mystics and futuristic body modification cults.

“[The Ghost Who Bled] is a sublime collection of short stories by a writer whose breath-taking flexibility of style gives life to an array of different voices… Unfailingly beautiful, deceptively simple and lyrically powerful.” The Irish Times
