Mike Hodges, director of Get Carter, Pulp and many other fabulous films, will be at the Owl to talk about his new collection of three noir novellas Bait, Grist & Security. Definitely not one to be missed!

‘”Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honour.”
So wrote one of my heroes, Raymond Chandler. Trouble is every time I start to write a script or novel and try to find this guy – I fail. The streets stay mean – but the heroes resolutely flawed.’ Mike Hodges
