In 2015, Harper Lee took the world by storm with the follow-up to her classic novel To Kill A Mockingbird. This June at the Royal Northern College of Music, you can witness another amazing comeback when Arundhati Roy presents her first novel since the Man Booker Prize-winning The God of Small Things two decades ago. Not that Roy hasn’t been busy. Since her Booker success, she has been a bold non-fiction writer and political activist, even being jailed for her views. Her new novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, will take us on a journey through cramped Old Delhi neighbourhoods and the valleys of Kashmir. This promises to be an electrifying night with one of the most influential authors of modern times. You can choose to pre-buy the novel when you book your ticket.

Fri 9 Jun, RNCM, 124 Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9RD. Tel: 0161 907 5200, 7.30pm, £12 / £10,
