Debut Series 2 Episode 2: Alan Parks

Season 2, Ep. 2

Welcome to series 2 of Debut, where Charles E McGarry chats with fellow crime fiction authors about their journeys from bedroom to bookshelf. Here Charles speaks with the amazing Alan Parks about how he moved from a career in the music industry to the instant success of his brilliant debut, Bloody January. It is set in the gloriously grimy Glasgow of the 1970s, and we discuss how memory plays its part in crime writing.
