Jay McInerney in conversation with Dave Haslam at Waterstones Manchester Deansgate, City Centre, 7 September 2016, from £4.00 - Book now

Hot on the heels of interviews with the likes of musician Tim Burgess and journalist Miranda Sawyer, the latest Close Up event sees the ubiquitous Dave Haslam host American heavyweight Jay McInerney – and we recommend you sign up for tickets straight away.

McInerney – author of Bright Lights, Big City and Model Behavior – has a career spanning over 30 years, and he is back with a new novel, his ninth book since 1984. Bright, Precious Days is set against the skyscrapers of his favourite backdrop, the Big Apple, and updates the story of couple Russell and Corrine Calloway; introduced in Brightness Falls in their twenties and revisited in The Good Life in their forties, when 9/11 changed their lives. The event will see McInerney reading extracts from the new book, followed by a question and answer session with Haslam and the audience, and a book signing.
