Get in the Thick Of It…with Will Smith

TV writer/actor/comedian/novelist stars in our February author talk

He’s known to millions of us as Peter Mannion’s hapless sidekick, the lanky Phil Smith in The Thick Of It, one of the most cutting, vibrant and brilliant TV satires of our times and was, indeed, the only actor to also have writing credits, but Will Smith is now adding to his lengthy credentials with a impressive literary debut in the form of Mainlander.

If ‘John Le Carre meets Middlemarch’ by way of Jersey sounds intriguing, Mainlander is worth investigating. It’s a story packed with rivalries, double dealings, back-stabbings plus the disappearance of  a teenage schoolboy and Will has kindly agreed to tell us more and sign copies on 24 Feb at 7.30pm
