|Faclan – Kevin MacNeil|
After a bike crash in a foggy Edinburgh, troubled young actor Robert Lewis wakes to find that life has changed for the darker. And the weirder. He’s still a deceitful egoist but now life seems to be deceiving and manipulating him. Everything that can go wrong is going wrong. He’s losing control of his love life, his starring role in a new adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde, and, quite possibly, his mind. A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde is a dark, maniacal thriller that explores many kinds of duality – individual, social and cultural, and is a heartfelt tale about the search for belonging and the nature of love and desire. It is also bloody funny.Kevin MacNeil was born and raised on the Isle of Lewis. A poet, novelist, aphorist, lyricist, screenwriter and playwright, his books include Love and Zen in the Outer Hebrides (Canongate), Be Wise Be Otherwise (Canongate), The Callanish Stoned (Theatre Hebrides) and The Stornoway Way (Penguin). His first book won the Tivoli Europa Giovani International Poetry Prize for best poetry collection published in Europe by a writer under 35. The Stornoway Way was a bestseller and is currently being optioned for a film. At Faclan he will be reading from his new novel which will be available for the first time at Faclan!
We will have the first 100 copies of Kevin’s book and ticket holders are invited to join Kevin for a glass of wine and book signing in the gallery after his talk.
