Pro­mot­ing first fic­tion foray in Lochgilp­head

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

JOUR­NAL­IST and writer Neal Asch­er­son vis­ited Lochgilp­head last week­end to pro­mote his lat­est book.

Pub­lished last month, The Death of the Fron­sac is a story of di­vided loy­al­ties, treach­ery and ex­ile amid the tragic fate of Poland in the 20th cen­tury.

Man­ager at the Ar­gyll Book Cen­tre Eli Pick­er­ing made cus­tomers feel at home on Satur­day Au­gust 26, with cof­fee and cake avail­able as the au­thor signed copies of his work. Ed­in­burgh-born Asch­er­son has lec­tured and writ­ten ex­ten­sively over many years about Pol­ish and Eastern Euro­pean af­fairs, but The Death of the Fron­sac is the 84-year-old’s first work of fic­tion.

In the 1999 elec­tion for the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment the old Eto­nian stood, un­suc­cess­fully, as a LibDem can­di­date in the West Ren­frew­shire con­stituency.

The au­thor meets 14-year-old fan El­lie Hil­ton at the Ar­gyll Book Cen­tre.
