In Conversation with Paul Dalgarno at Waterstones, Aberdeeen

10 August @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us for an evening with the author Paul Dalgarno where he will be talking about his brand new book, A Country of Eternal LightSpanning the globe from Aberdeen to Australia, this novel is original, funny and poignant and takes the reader on a journey like no other.

About A Country of Eternal Light:

Margaret Bryce has been having a hard time since dying in 2014.

In a place beyond, we join Margaret as she revisits her life, from her Aberdeen prefab childhood to the birth of her twin girls, through Thatcher’s Britain, the Piper Alpha oil rig disaster, Australia’s Black Summer bushfires, the death of Princess Diana and the COVID pandemic. But something isn’t quite right. Margaret is trying to remember, but also fighting to forget.

A Country of Eternal Light will take you on a journey like no other. It is an utterly original, bitingly funny and poignant novel about life, death, what we choose to remember – and what we’d do anything to forget.

About the author:

Paul Dalgarno was a Senior Writer and Features Editor at The Herald newspaper group before moving to Australia to continue his successful career in journalism.

This Q&A will allow time for audience questions and will be followed by a signing. Tickets are £3, available in store and online.
