Jodie Chapman and Paul Mendez Event Ticket


ON 1st June at 7pm, BookBar welcomes Paul Mendez and Jodie Chapman to talk about their debut novels Rainbow Milk and Another Life.


RAINBOW MILK by Paul Mendez is an explosive and compassionate debut novel, which follows Jesse, a young Jehovah's Witness who is ostracized from his community when it is revealed that he is gay. Moving from Wolverhampton to London, where Jesse becomes a sex worker, Rainbow Milk is a visceral, pulsating novel with some of the most startlingly accomplished and visceral writing about sex, loneliness, race and faith we've read.

ANOTHER LIFE by Jodie Chapman is a a big-hearted book. Nick and Anna meet working at their local cinema and embark on a passionate summer romance. But their bond is threatened by their inability to escape their pasts: Anna's strict Jehovahs' Witness upbringing and the tragedy that changed Nick's childhood haunt the relationship. It's full of the warmth of David Nicholls with moments of vulnerable beauty.
