What happens when an over-analytical literature graduate inconceivably champions the 2-page novels of a charming misfit from Shropshire?

Charming misfit Christopher Bliss (★★★★ "One of this year's hidden treasures… consistently, pant-wettingly funny" - Fest) writes 2-3 terrible novels a day. Turtleneck-clad literature clad Luke Courtier (★★★★★ "hilarious" - The Good Review) thinks he's found hidden levels to Bliss' work.

And so Christopher Bliss' Literary Salon was born co-hosted by Courtier and Bliss. The pair of them, operating on opposite ends of the intellectual spectrum, are joined each month by an actual published novelist. As Bliss metes out totally unwarranted feedback on their work and improves classic literature, Courtier will be on hand with excellent footnotes and a stonking claret.

As a bonus, Bliss will be reading from his new novels and doling out extra advice to anyone who wants it. Probably all of you?
