Rakestraw Books "Live at Home!" with William Boyd

SATURDAY, 19 MARCH 2022 at 9:30 AM / IN CONVERSATION

William Boyd, Trio

Rakestraw Books is delighted to present a virtual event with novelist William Boyd as we celebrate the paperback publication of his new book, Trio. We are happy to offer this event via Crowdcast on a Saturday morning -- we'll be here and he will be in London -- so join us!

It’s summer 1968, and the world is reeling from war and assassinations, protests and riots. In a sunny British seaside town, a producer, a novelist, and an actress are enduring their own more private crises on the set of a disaster-plagued movie. All are leading secret lives—one is in the closet; another is an alcoholic; and the third is sleeping with her costar—and as the shoot zigs and zags, these layers of secrets become increasingly more untenable. Pressures build inexorably—and that’s before the FBI and CIA get involved. Someone is going to crack—or maybe they all will. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Trio is an enthralling novel that asks the vital questions: What makes life worth living? And what do you do if you find it isn’t?

Michael has been reading Boyd's novels since 1989 when his mom pushed The New Confessions into his hands, so this event really is a special thrill! Please make your reservations for this free event HERE.
