Review: Sal by Mick Kitson

Mick Kitson’s debut novel Sal, out this March from Canongate, tells the story of eponymous teenager Salmarina, who after enduring years of abuse by her mother’s boyfriend is forced to take matters into her own hands when he threatens her younger sister, Peppa. She must stop him and flee and, at all costs, she and Peppa must stay together. The book follows the girls’ flight into the depths of the Galloway forest park. Kitson’s spare, McCarthyesque prose tugs the reader along with highly textured procedural details; the making of a camp, the building of a shelter, the gutting of an animal--or a man.

Review: All Night Horror Madness

As the night approached, I couldn’t believe it’d been a whole year since the last All Night Horror Madness at the Cameo. What’s more, I was reminded earlier in the day that I had press tickets for Erasure at the Usher Hall that very same night and now had to cram the gig in before attending an all night movie marathon!
