Squeaky Clean by Callum McSorley launch night with Elle Nash | 2nd March @ 7pm

Join us to celebrate the launch of Squeaky Clean by Callum McSorley

'A manic tale of blood and suds told with laconic humour and warmly engaging characterisation. Callum McSorley is definitely a talent to watch. I knew within a page that I was in good hands' —Chris Brookmyre

Half of Glasgow thinks DI Alison McCoist is bent. The other half just think she's a fuck-up. No one thinks very much at all about carwash employee Davey Burnet, until one day he takes the wrong customer's motor for a ride. One kidnapping later, he and the carwash are officially part of Glasgow's criminal underworld, working for a psychopath who enjoys playing games like 'Keep Yer Kneecaps' with any poor bastard who crosses him. Can Davey escape from the gang's clutches with his kneecaps and life intact? Perhaps this polis Ally McCoist who keeps nosing around the carwash could help. That's if she doesn't get herself killed first.

Callum McSorley graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2013 and in 2014 was selected for the Hermann Kesten Writing Scholarship in Nuremberg. Since then, his short stories have appeared in Gutter Magazine, Monstrous Regiment, and New Writing Scotland. Squeaky Clean is his debut novel. 

Callum will be joined in conversation by Elle Nash. Elle is the founding editor of Witch Craft Magazine and a fiction editor at Hobart Pulp. Her work has been featured in Volume 1 Brooklyn, The Fanzine, Cosmopolitan, Elle, The Offing, Enclave, and other places. Occasionally she reads tarot in exchange for money. Her debut novel Animals Eat Each Other was published by 404 Ink
