Alex Preston, Sara Collins and Sarah Churchwell

What is it to pursue a goal, to strive for an ideal, to follow a dream? These are the questions explored in 'Pursuit', a collection compiled by award-winning novelist Alex Preston. The stories – from some of the brightest and most exciting voices writing today – tell of determination, endeavour and perseverance against the odds.

This book was conceived as an accompaniment to a range of whiskies, The Balvenie Stories, commissioned by The Balvenie Distillery. Shots of malt whisky will be served at the event.

Alex Preston is an award-winning author and journalist. Sara Collins is the author of acclaimed novel 'The Confessions of Frannie Langton'. Sarah Churchwell is Professor of American Literature at the University of London and author of 'Behold, America', 'The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe' and 'Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and the Invention of The Great Gatsby'.
