New York author TONY O’NEILL will join us on November 25th for a noir-filled night of novel reading, with a special support slot from GRAEME SHIMMIN, author of spy thriller A Kill In The Morning.

Support will come from Bad Language names DAVID HARTLEY and FAT ROLAND.

Tony is here to promote Black Neon, which Irvine Welsh calls “pitch black classic slice of neo-noir, where black magic, art house cinema, drug-fuelled madness and apocalyptic violence collide with dizzying effect.”

“I fell in love with every page,” adds Welsh.

Tony is a founding member of the Brutalists, a literary collective alongside Adelle Stripe and Ben Myers. He has played in Kenickie, in The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and with Marc Almond and Kelli Ali. Alongside novels, he has co-written memoirs and has written short stories for the likes of 3:AM Magazine. He’s even written poetry. Basically, he’s done everything.
