Brett Anderson in Conversation at The Dancehouse, Manchester, 28 March 2018, from £10.00 - Book now

Coal Black Mornings is a book title that sounds pretty apt for an event organised by Manchester Literature Festival (back in full in October 2018). Yet it’s by Brett Anderson, the founder and singer of Suede, who grew up in Hayward’s Heath ‘on the grubby fringes of the Home Counties’ darn sarf.

We’ll let him off – he studied here in the Rainy City, where he came across bands like The Fall and The Smiths, obvious inspiration in his own musical endeavours. The memoir Coal Black Mornings – out first in hardback with Little, Brown this spring, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Suede’s first album, and then in Abacus paperback – delves into the singer’s upbringing, student life and the rise of Suede, and records his reflections on his family and friends, love and loss.

Described as “brilliantly written with warmth, humour and honesty” and “profoundly moving”, Coal Black Mornings is a must for Suede fans and this event will be a chance to hear Brett Anderson read extracts. He’ll also be signing copies of the book and discussing his life and career with poet and author of Black Teeth and A Brilliant Smile Adelle Stripe.
Basic tickets cost £10, and you can pre-purchase a ticket plus a copy of Coal Black Mornings for £24. Please note: this event is showing as sold out, but there may be returns on the door.

Doors open at 7pm, event starts at 7.30pm
