Hay Player

Biyi Bandele, Diran Adebayo, Courttia Newland

Hay Festival 2000, 
Three of the most brilliant young British fiction writers read and talk about their work, language and storytelling. Newland's Society Within is set again on the Greenside Estate of his first novel The Scholar. Adebayo's My Once Upon a Time follows his Saga Prize-winning Some Kind of Black with a spin on the urban gumshoe plot as his PI searches through London's mean streets to find a bride for a country millionaire. Bandele's The Street is a surreal and picarresque trawl thrugh the weird and wonderful streets of Brixton.
