Manchester’s Comma Press presents two of Europe’s most respected short story practitioners, both launching new collections. Salford-born David Constantine was the winner of the BBC National Short Story Award in 2010, and the only non-US author shortlisted for the Frank O’Connor International Award that year. His latest collection, Tea at the Midland, is launched by Comma this autumn. Gdansk-born Pawel Huelle has been shortlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize three times, and in a previous life worked as press secretary for the Solidarity Movement. His latest collection, Cold Sea Stories, weaves the history and mythology of the Baltic coast into stories of incredible power and resonance. This event is supported by the Polish Cultural Institute and is part of the Pole Position autumn book promotion of new Polish writing. £6/£4; booking on 0843 208 0500 or via Quay Tickets. A Manchester Literature Festival event.
