Chris Cleave
Returns to Dallas
at Arts & Letters Live!
____________________________________
Tuesday, October 9, 7:30 p.m.
Horchow Auditorium

Winner of the 2006 Somerset Maugham Award for his debut novel, Incendiary, Chris
Cleave continues to enthrall readers with his moving stories and beautiful prose.
His novel Little Bee, a New York Times #1 bestseller, is the story of a collision
between the world of  a young Nigerian girl and a British magazine editor and the
discovery  of where their individuality lies. The Boston Globe calls  Little Bee
"one of the most vividly memorable and provocative characters  in recent contemporary
fiction. . . . Cleave paces the story  beautifully, lacing it with wit, compassion,
and, even at the darkest  moments, a searing ray of hope." The novel was nominated
for the 2008  Costa Book Awards as well as a 2009 Commonwealth Writers' Prize.

His newest novel, Gold,  focuses on the friendship between two athletes and how
they traverse  the shifting sands of ambition, loyalty, and love on the eve of their
last Olympics, London 2012. Both women are tested to their physical and  emotional
limits while facing each other and their own mortality. Publisher's Weekly wrote,
"Cleave expertly cycles through the characters' tangled past and  present, charting
their ever-shifting dynamic. . . . The race scenes  have true visceral intensity,
leaving the reader feeling breathless." In  focusing on the extremities of sickness
and health, Cleave expresses  his desire to show that "we can make a kind of heaven
on earth" through  the sacrifice of our own ambitions. Cleave's work has been published
in  over twenty countries and has been adapted into feature films with stars  such
as Michelle Williams and Ewan McGregor.

Garret members can see him for the same price as Arts & Letters Live / DMA Member--only
$20!!! Simply mention
