AN AUTHOR who was nominated for the Man Booker Prize will be signing copies of her latest novel in Chichester next week.

Writer Alison MacLeod, who was long-listed for her novel Unexploded last year, will be speaking about the book at the university on Wednesday.

The Canadian-born novelist, who is a professor of contemporary fiction at the institution, will also talk about her inspiration, research, and writing process at the free event from 5pm.

Prof MacLeod said: ‘Unexploded, an exploration of love, prejudice, war, and the power of art, was released in the wake of the Man-Booker nomination.

‘The response from readers has been wonderful, and I am thrilled to be signing copies of the book at the university.’

The event, which is being held at the institution’s Bishop Otter campus in Chichester, will be followed by readings from award-winning poet and short fiction writer David Constantine.
