Equus Press proudly presents, for one show only, LOUIS ARMAND & RICHARD MAKIN Live at Conway Hall, London. Join us at this year’s the Small Publishers Fair on Red Lion Sq for the (2nd edition) launch of Louis Armand’s Not-the-Booker Prize shortlisted novel, THE COMBINATIONS, & Richard Makin’s MOURNING. Readings, book signings & refreshments. Equus, in partnership with Litteraria Pragensia Books, will be manning a stall throughout the fair, throughout Friday 4th & Saturday 5th November, with a wide range of exciting new titles and selections from our backlist. Check out our catalogue at www.equuspress.com &www.litterariapragensia.com Free event! Everyone welcome.
Louis ARMAND will be reading from his recent Prague magnum opus, THE COMBINATIONS, praised by Richard Marshall as “an important and corrosive novel, which is a commitment to creativity in the face of absurdity, a politics of avant garde literary concentration and experience” and as “a ‘great novel’ — long and complex […] exemplifying remarkably the possibilities of the genre and contradicts the contemporary obsession with its decline and commodification” by Jean Bessiere. https://equuspress.wordpress.com/the-combinations/
Richard MAKIN will read from MOURNING, the final part of his trilogy (begun with WORK & DWELLING), described by David Caddy as “an extraordinary and distinct achievement. It is a demanding and enriching read characterized by highly wrought sentences, which cover a range of discourses and fictional events.” In the words of Iain Sinclair, “The writing is that it is. This is prose you must learn to experience before you begin to interpret […] the pages in their beautiful and delirious abstraction are ordered poetry.” https://equuspress.wordpress.com/mourning/

SPECIAL FEATURE: Launch of Richard Makin’s new novel, MOURNING (published by Equus Press, 2015).
equus press was established in 2011 between Paris, London & Prague with the objective of publishing new writing that is innovative & conscious of being doubly marginalised: outside the literary establishment defined by the Anglo-American publishing industry, & outside the confines of nationalism, pursuing a broadly cosmopolitan “agenda”; what has come to be termed “translocal” writing. The press is launching its next two novels, The News Clown by Thor Garcia and Breakfast at Midnight by Louis Armand at a series of events in London and Manchester:
- FRIDAY 13 APRIL, 7-9pm @ Rich Mix, 35 – 47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA..
- SATURDAY 14 APRIL, 6.30-8.30pm @ The Anthony Burgess Foundation, The Engine House, Chorlton Mill, 3 Cambridge Street, Manchester M1 5BY.
- SUNDAY 15 APRIL, 7.30-9.30pm @ The Castle Hotel, 66 Oldham Street, Manchester, M4 1LE.
- MONDAY 16 APRIL, 7-9 pm @ The Phoenix Artists Club, 1 Phoenix Street, London, WC2H 8BU.
