Walter Mosley

Walter Mosley heads to the city from New York for a rare UK appearance. Hosted by Writing on the Wall, the event will explore a shared literary heritage and transatlantic experiences of race, class and equality.Walter Mosley is one of the most versatile and admired writers in America today. He is the author of more than 43 critically acclaimed books, including the major best selling mystery series featuring Easy Rawlins and Devil in a Blue Dress. His work has been translated into 23 languages and includes literary fiction, science fiction, political monographs, and a young adult novel. He is the winner of numerous awards, including an O. Henry Award, a Grammy and PEN America’s Lifetime Achievement Award. 
 
Madeline Heneghan Co- Director, Writing on the Wall says:
‘It’s a real coup to have such an iconic American writer as Walter Mosley in the city. This is an exceptional treat for fans of crime fiction and an absolute must for those interested in contemporary US politics and culture’. 
 

Subterranean Theatre: The Maurie

Written by Writing on the Wall’s Mike Morris, The Maurie is based on a 1920s short story by rediscovered Liverpool seafarer and writer George Garrett. It celebrates the mighty ‘Scouse boat’ the Mauretania, and the lives of those who worked below decks, and will be set in the ‘Subterranean Theatre’ of the ship’s engine room.
 
Mike Morris says: “Garrett described the scene in the engine rooms of the Mauretania as a ‘Subterranean Theatre’; it’s a fitting tribute to Garrett, and the stokers, who laboured below decks in almost inhuman conditions to keep these incredible liners running, that their contribution to Liverpool’s maritime history is recognised as part of the city’s One Magnificent City celebrations.”
 
Preceding the production, there will be a series of workshops to learn about the life and work of George Garrett Garrett and his links to America. Dates to be confirmed.
