Tuesday, 5th July 2022, 4:36 pm

Off the Shelf is delighted to welcome Frankie Boyle, one of the UK’s most popular comedians, to The Octagon at the University of Sheffield in the evening to launch his debut crime novel Meantime.

And Sheffield is just one of five cities chosen for his UK book launch tour.

Frankie Boyle will be discussing his book with writer and broadcaster Nick Ahad and the novel promises a wild ride through Glasgow’s multicultural present and colonial past, exploring the dark heart of Scottish politics, the orbit of drug dealers and the matrix of AI. This dark noir tale is structured in Frankie Boyle's unmistakable, inimitable comic style.
