An Evening with Stav Sherez at Rough Trade East

Stav Sherez is an acclaimed crime writer. The author of The Devil's Playground, The Black Monastery and his newest work A Dark Redemption. That's cool enough, we're big fans of crime writing here at Rough Trade - from Conan Doyle, Ross MacDonald and Dashiell Hammet to Kinky Friedman and Elmore Leonard, but Stav was also one of the standout writers on the much missed music magazine Comes With A Smile, writing articulate, smart reviews and conducting interviews that genuinely illuminated their subjects in a way that the fossil poking monthlys had neither the brains or balls to. We remember an interview with Richard Buckner that was a particular highlight, the pair speaking about books, films, music, people, places...
Anyway, Stav's a big music lover, a long-time customer, and a damn fine prose stylist, so we recommend you get down here and check him out in conversation with The Telegraph's crime fiction critic Jake Kerridge.
