An evening with Robert Welbourn

May 17, 2023 @ 18:30 21:00

Join us in the shop for an evening with Robert Welbourn to chat about his second novel Belonging.

Robert’s debut, Ideal Angels, published in 2018 and received overwhelmingly positive reviews. His writing asks the question, what is it to be human? With a BA and MA in literature, Welbourn’s writing tries to find out how to survive in a world that feels like it doesn’t care. His fast-pace, ironic prose may look shallow on the surface, but in reality it makes us look into ourselves and discover who we really are.

Robert’s stand-out achievement in the novel is his ability to map out the hundreds of different ways in which his protagonist strives to make connection with others.

Noah is young, attractive, and madly in love with two people. These two people are both madly in love with Noah, yet neither knows about the other. Can Noah balance two secret relationships while trying to discover who he really is as a person? When family tragedy strikes, how will Noah cope with all that follows? Belonging is a novel about being young and in love in a world that’s cold and uncaring. Can you ever truly know someone if you don’t know yourself? Can you find a meaning in a world that seems random and thoughtless? Does anybody, like, actually care?
