A west Norfolk author whose latest work has earned plaudits in the UK and abroad will be signing books at the Diss Publishing Bookshop for the first time on Saturday.

Alex Marsh is currently touring following the release of his latest book ‘The Resurrection of Frederic Debreu’, on May 5 — a story about a retired English couple spending a calamitous year in the French countryside.

Obviously it’s great when anyone says nice things about your work, let alone when it’s somebody of that standing

The novel has been praised by multiple BBC writers, and even received a testimonial from well-known American comedian Jill Twiss.

Mr Marsh said: “Obviously it’s great when anyone says nice things about your work, let alone when it’s somebody of that standing.”

“My writing’s very English in nature.

“I grew up with those classic warm, funny-yet-touching novels such as ‘The Darling Buds of May’ and ‘Lucky Jim.’

“It’s a style that does seem to appeal universally, so I’m hoping this book will do well everywhere.

“There’s already a little buzz about it, which is fantastic.”

The signing will take place on Saturday at the bookshop near Mere’s Mouth in Mere Street between 11am and 1pm.
