Join John Murray Press for an exclusive early preview of three of their most exciting debut novels publishing in 2024 – and take a copy of each book home with you!

Gender Theory is an incisive and breathless literary debut from new Scottish writer Madeline Docherty, exploring illness, friendship, finding your place, and how we care for those around us.

Spanning three timelines, Cinema Love by Brooklyn-based writer Andy Jiaming Tang is a voice-driven, tender epic about gay men in rural China and the women who marry them.

The Borrowed Hills is a blistering debut from British fiction writer Scott Preston; set on a sheep farm in rural Cumbria where the flocks are ravaged by foot and mouth disease.

Attendees will receive a special goody bag containing exclusive proof copies of all three titles.

Please note live-stream tickets will not include copies of the books.
