Launching The Ship

The Ship - Antonia HoneywellYesterday I made my way into Bristol to help out at an event organized by the Bristol Festival of Literature. It was the launch, at Foyles, of The Ship, a debut novel by Antonia Honeywell. Given that the book is clearly dystopian, my friend Pete Sutton asked me if I would be willing to host the event and interview Antonia. I am delighted to say that it all went very well. Antonia coped superbly with her first public author event, and we got a decent crowd who asked good questions. I have now written a review of The Ship, and you can read it here. The short version is that it is more allegory than science fiction, but very interesting all the same.
