DCLive presents The Light Keeper by Cole Moreton

At this event Cole will read from The Light Keeper and tell the gripping stories behind the book, as the only journalist ever to have gone on patrol at the cliff edge with the Chaplains, who save lives there. He will also perform songs written and recorded to accompany the book, with his acoustic band The Light Keepers. 

The Light Keeper is a personal response to the landscape near his home, around Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters, as well as the art and stories of the area, by the likes of Eric Ravilious and Virginia Woolf. 

THIS IS A FREE EVENT, ALTHOUGH WE ARE ENCOURAGING DONATIONS ON THE NIGHT TO SUPPORT WISH TOWER FRIENDS
PLACES ARE LIMITED TO 30 PEOPLE, IT'S ADVISABLE TO RESERVE YOUR PLACE BY CONTACTING DC1. EMAILING INFO@DEVONSHIRECOLLECTIVE.CO.UK, POPPING INTO DC1 & LETTING US KNOW OR VIA WWW.ONLINETICKETSELLER.COM  
The Light Keeper is a story of love, hope, grief, faith and longing, set in the stunning landscape around Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters. A young woman stands on the brink, arms open wide as if to let the world carry her away. She’s come to the high cliffs to be alone, to face the truth about her life, to work out what to do. Her lover Jack is searching, desperate to find her before it is too late. But Sarah doesn’t want to be found. Not yet. Not by him. And someone else is seeking answers up here, where the seabirds soar - a man known only as the Keeper, living in an old lighthouse right on the cusp of a four-hundred-foot drop. He is all too aware that sometimes love takes you to the edge … 

The Light Keeper is published August 15 but early reviews have been sensational:

Matt Haig, author of Humans and Notes From A Nervous Planet says: “Cole writes with human warmth and bittersweet emotion. I loved this.” 

Award-winning writer Anthony Horowitz says: “Wonderfully written. This is a book that will stay with you.” 

Jane Fallon, best-selling novelist, says: “An absolute thing of beauty. Fabulous.” 

Peter James, Brighton-based king of thrillers, says: “Mesmerising and lyrical. Cole creates atmospheres you can breathe and emotion that can shred your heart.”

Radio 2’s Kate Bottley says: “A beautifully haunting read. Evocative, spiritual and deeply immersive.” 

Cole Moreton is a writer and broadcaster who has written for The Guardian, The Telegraph and many others. He makes award-winning documentaries for Radio 4 and was named Interviewer of the Year at the Press Awards for his work with the Mail on Sunday. His non-fiction debut Hungry for Home was shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys prize for first book in any genre, alongside Zadie Smith’s White Teeth. The Light Keeper is his first novel and has been ten years in the writing. Cole lives in Eastbourne and spends as much time as possible staring out to sea.
