Immediately following the tragic death of a young girl on a small street in Stoke-on-Trent, all her neighbours experience the same musical hallucination. This is the story of that strange hallucination, and its aftermath as a family slowly disintegrates in the wake of a terrible loss.

Jonathan is Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Leicester and Maria lectures in Creative Writing at De Montfort University.
The evening will include readings from both authors, and the official Nottingham launch of Jonathan’s new novel, Melissa (Salt, Autumn 2015).
