One of the UK's best loved authors returns to Manchester to discuss his witty and engrossing new novel You Are Here, the story of two lonely people as part of the Spring programme for Manchester Literature Festival. Thirty-eight-year-old Marnie and forty-two-year-old Michael, battered by break-ups and the loss of the futures they'd hoped for are brought together by a mutual friend. When they embark on the Coast to Coast walk they are reminded how to open up to new people, how to have fun in sometimes arduous conditions, and, ultimately, how to love. David is the best-selling author of five previous novels including Starter for Ten, which has recently been turned into a musical, and One Day, which has been adapted into a new Netflix series. His screenplay of Edward St Aubyn's Patrick Melrose novels won a BAFTA for Best Writer and was nominated for an Emmy. Presented in partnership with the Centre for New Writing, Creative Manchester and Waterstones Deansgate.
