Newton Talks #20 Author R.M. Francis and The Wrenna

Episode 29,  Aug 02, 2021, 11:26 AM

I am joined in this twentieth episode of Newton Talks by Black Country author and lecturer R.M. Francis to discuss his new novella called The Wrenna, set on the Wren's Nest Estate in Dudley. We discuss the book's influences in both social realism and horror, its fractured structure, and its relationship to sex, violence, and the abject. We also talk about working class representation, culture, and history. You can order The Wrenna from Wild Pressed Books for £10 here:  http://www.wildpressedbooks.com/the-wrenna.html
