|Putney Waste Land - Meet The Author (He'll Be Hard To Miss!)|
Local author Simon Acland will be at Waterstone's in Putney Exchange
Simon will be signing copies of his First Crusade historical novel The Waste Land in Waterstone’s Putney Exchange on Saturday 24th July from 11.00 am onwards. He will be easy to recognise because he will be wearing the costume of a Crusader knight
The novel is not set in Putney, and as a result the title is not a rude reference to the delightful area in which he has lived for the last sixteen years. It is in fact an allusion to the famous TS Eliot poem and the action ranges from France to Constantinople, Antioch and Jerusalem, not to mention Alamut, the headquarters of the sinister Assassins sect.
Simon hopes that readers will:
