Eason Event: Patrick Ness
Eason are delighted to announce an exclusive event with Patrick Ness to discuss the eagerly anticipated new book Release from the carnegie medal-winning bestselling author of A Monster Calls and the chaos walking series.
Based on Patrick’s own experience growing up gay in a deeply religious family this is the most personal, raw and emotional literary novel from Patrick Ness yet.
This beautifully raw coming of age story with a fantastical twist is inspired in part by the glorious frankness about sex of Judy Blume’s Forever and in part by the life-in-a-day structure and themes of Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway
He doesn’t know it yet, but everything in Adam Thorn’s life is about to fall apart.
Then in a single day, everything Adam once knew and depended on seems to come crumbling down. Can he ever be honest with his family about who he really is? Will he ever get over his first heartbreak and accept that he is worthy of happiness with the sweet and nerdy Linus? And how will he survive any of this without Angela who is suddenly moving away?
Meanwhile, a girl has been violently drowned in the local lake across town, and now her spirit has risen and is seeking revenge. But her awakening has stirred an ancient and terrible power that could bring about the end of both their worlds. Can Adam and the spirit find the release they crave, or are they and their worlds destined for destruction? Spanning a single day in Adam’s life, Release perfectly encapsulates that teenage feeling that the world could come to an end at any second.
