Book Signing

Michael Cross signs his new book Freedom from Conscience - Deliverance from Evil.

Saturday September 20, 11.00 at The English Bookshop, Lilla Nygatan 11, Gamla stan

Welcome!

    'Vincent, a charismatic older man, is on a quest; he seeks revenge for a horrific tragedy he suffered years earlier. His lust is only satisfied through making mankind into his prey. Melanie Lindberg is a research psychologist who has left her violent past behind and lives an idealic, although unconventional, life with her loving family.
    Melanie and Vincent's paths intersect when he rips her away from those who care for her...desiring to make her his own. Will she succumb to Vincent's mesmerizing charm and become his loyal companion in terror or will she have the power to resist him? This epic battle of wills reaches a surprising climax which will forever change Melanie's life.'

Barry McCrea & The First Verse! Interview by Helena Dahlgren.

14:00 - 15:00
The Uppsala International Authors Stage at the City Library.

Barry McCreaBarry McCrea is an Irish writer and academic who is currently professor of Literature at Notre Dame University.

In 2005 he published an award-winning novel; The First Verse, about a young man who gets pulled into a world of darkness and literature at Trinity College in Dublin. The novel is based around the classical concept of Sortes Vergilianae where advice or predictions of the future are sought by interpreting passages from literature.

The novel explores Dublin’s every corner, including a first-of-its-kind portrayal of its thriving gay nightlife, through the eyes of a young man seduced by a secret society’s ancient reading rituals, based on the sortes virgilianae. In brilliant prose, author Barry McCrea gives readers a psychologically gripping tale set within the intertwining worlds of literature and the living.
