David McGrath is a hit with Waverton Good Reads
19 Nov 2015
David McGrath recently gave a reading at a meeting of Waverton Good Reads, after which all copies of his exhilarating debut novel Rickshaw were quickly snapped up.
‘David McGrath writes for ‘my mates in the pub who never read’, but the rapid sale of copies of Rickshaw after his performance of a scene from this novel to a room of avid readers tells you that his appeal is much broader than that. No, he doesn’t like adverbs and he avoids flowery descriptive language. Instead, he uses sparse narrative and superb dialogue to say it all.’ Gwen Goodhew - Waverton Good Read Award
