19 June, 2019: Book Launch: Rules for Visiting, by Jessica Francis Kane Join us in celebrating Jessica Francis Kane's novel, Rules for Visiting, to be published 6 June 2019 by Granta. Kane will be in conversation with A N Devers, the owner of The Second Shelf, to discuss her work and influences. May is at a crossroads. Although her career as a gardener for the university is flourishing, the rest of her life has narrowed to a parched routine. Her father is elderly, her brother estranged, and she keeps her neighbours at arm's length. The missing element, she realises, might be friendship. As May sets off on a journey to visit four neglected friends one-by-one, she holds herself (and them) to humorously high standards, while at home she begins to confront the pain of her past and imagine for herself a different kind of future. May's quest becomes an exploration of the power, and perhaps limits, of modern friendship. (Click here to see more …)
