The Literary Lunch takes place on Friday 20th May in the Jubilee Hall, Malpas.
Malfest organisers are hoping you will join them at this years literary lunch, the speaker is fascinating author Phil Gooden who writes both fiction and non-fiction. His historical novels include the Nick Revill series, set in Elizabethan London, and a Victorian sequence, the most recent title for which is The Durham Deception. Philip also writes books on language, including 'Who's Whose?' and 'Faux Pas?', which won the English Speaking Union award for the best English Language book of 2006. He was chairman of the Crime Writers' Association in 2007-8.
His book 'Skyscrapers, Hemlines and the Eddie Murphy Rule' begs a few questions: What is the shade of difference between Sod's Law and Murphy's Law? What is the Helsinki Bus Station Theory? What part do the McNaughton Rules and the Miranda Law play in criminal justice?
