We’re delighted to be joined by author Diao Dou, who’ll be reading from and discussing his work, alongside Samantha Clark from Comma Press. Comma have just published the first English translation of Diao Dou’s short stories, Points of Origin (translated by Brendan O’Kane).

Join us for wine and nibbles from 4.30, and discover more about these surreal stories and the author’s ‘literary acrobatics’!

Diao Dou is also our author of the month in October, and you can read one of his stories on our bookclub page, in both Chinese and English, translated by Brendan.
