As part of Glasgow's West end Festival, Allan Cameron will be at Waterstones Byres on 22 June to discuss his latest book, Cinico: Travels with a Good Professor at the Time of the Scottish Referendum, in which a narrator pretends to be an author and a perverse author pretends to be a translator who in his ensuing confusion drinks himself to death, causing a dispute between the fictional editor, the fictional author, his fictional wife and the translator's fictional widow, solely to illustrate the enlightened and enlightening chaos of translation, when the true purpose of this novel is to present conflicting views on nation, nationalism, power, class and the Scottish referendum. All are welcome.
Harry Giles, whose poetry appears in Be the First to Like This and Our Real Red Selves, will be at the Ullapool Book Festival in an event chaired by Peggy Hughes on Friday, 5 May at 3.30 p.m. Tickets are £8. For more details please visit the Ullapool Book Festival website.
