Come along on ‘My Vauxhall’, writer and Vauxhall Society member Gabriel Gbadamosi’s lunchtime guided history walk, 12.30-1.30pm on Friday 31 May. It’s free, because it’s funded by Vauxhall One. You do have to book though (see below). Do that, and you can ask your guide Gabriel killer questions, such as ‘How much of your new novel Vauxhall is autobiographical?’ and ‘Who’s that in The Vauxhall Society’s snapshot, and where and when was it taken?’
Vauxhall the novel came out on May 1 to a rave review in the Daily Mail from Imogen Lycett Green, for whom ‘Gbadamosi is an exceptional writer of Nigerian/Irish heritage, who describes with poetic rhythm a child’s awakening in a violent, confusing London’.’ ‘Yet’, Lycett Green continues, ‘this is not a bleak tale’. Told in a series of vivid and often comical vignettes, ‘Vauxhall is underpinned by wisdom, love and warmth…This is a powerful novel about human resilience’.
