Parthian, in collaboration with Literature Across Frontiers, is publishing a new Brexit anthology of European writers later this month called Zero Hours on the Boulevard: Tales of Independence and Belonging. To celebrate the publication of this new short story collection, we have scheduled four book launches in London, Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Bangor.
Zero Hours on the Boulevard features stories from 17 authors including Alys Conran, Karmele Jaio, Sion Tomos Owen, Eric Ngalle, Uršuľa Kovalyk, Durre Shahwar and several more. It is our attempt at keeping Wales in Europe through a literary dialogue and we are proud to feature such fine writers from the continent including La Blanche author Maї-Do Hamisultane.
