Dr Jonathan Taylor



This is the Leicester launch of Jonathan Taylor’s second novel, Melissa, published by Salt in Autumn 2015. There will be refreshments and readings. The novel is set on a small street in Stoke-on-Trent where, in June 1999, a young girl dies of Leukaemia. Immediately afterwards, everyone on the street experiences the same musical hallucination. The novel is about that hallucination, and its aftermath, as the family of the girl disintegrates in the wake of a terrible loss.

The launch will include readings and refreshments. It is free and open to all.
