Nicholas Royle talks about his new novel

Silas and Ethel Woodlock have retired to the seaside,
but are distracted by herring gulls. Journalist
Stephen Osmer is writing a provocative essay about social justice and a diatribe about two people called Nicholas Royle.
Lily Lynch is pursuing more than her art project
about ‘cinematic intentions’…

Nicholas Royle, Professor of English Literature at Sussex
University, reads from his new novel described as combining
a page-turning story about literary theft, adultery and
ambition with a poetic and moving investigation into our relationship to birds and the environment. A “compelling investigation of the nature of writing and the writing of nature. I ended it moved in ways I could not explain.”
