This debut collection from Eley Williams centres upon the difficulties of communication and the way in which one’s thoughts — absurd, encompassing, oblique — may never be fully communicable and yet can overwhelm. Attrib. and other storiescelebrates the tricksiness of language just as it confronts its limits.

‘It’s exciting to come across a writer playing with language so experimentally. There’s no one working in the UK quite like her.’ — Joanna Walsh

Novel Writers
Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas
