Mat Osman is the bassist and founding member of the iconic British Rock band Suede. As part of our Festival of Spoken Word he will discuss his new book The Ruins with novelist and publisher Tariq Goddard. The Ruins is Osman’s debut novel and is a dark and dreamlike story of identity, ambition and music. It charts the tale of twin brothers – Adam and Brandon – who, having not spoken for decades, find themselves dragged back in to each others lives after Brandon is killed. Shy, stuttering Adam finds himself caught up in his murdered brother’s world of deception, violence and forgery.
Tariq Goddard is the founder and publisher of Repeater Books, a publishing imprint based in London that is dedicated to the creation of a new reality that aims to publish in every sphere and genre.
