Which do you like better – a cold beer or a good book? Psyche! As if we’d make you choose. Our brothers at ShortList are marrying the two by flying US author Donald Ray Pollock in for their next Beer & Book Club (in association with Vintage) at Brixton’s Blues Kitchen on October 11. He’s there to give a reading of his new novel The Heavenly Table – a story of three bloodthirsty brothers and their bank-robbing spree across 1917 America – and get interviewed by ShortList editor (and former Mr Hyde editor) Joe Mackertich while you suck back on a couple of bottles of Sierra Nevada. Tickets are riiight here.
