Marking the publication of Dave Haslam’s new short format book about Pablo Picasso’s Paris nightlife, Dave and Jeff Young (Ghost Town) will be discussing the phantoms and inspirations of cities; memories; music; the cultural value of late night venues; Picasso, and punk; Eric’s and the Hacienda; and the links between art and life after dark.

Dave Haslam is a former DJ at the Hacienda in Manchester, a journalist and the author of several other full-length and short format books. His memoir, Sonic Youth Slept on My Floor (2018) was proclaimed Book of the Year by Gilles Peterson. His current project is 'Art Decades', a series of short format books; subjects have included Sylvia Plath, Keith Haring, and the Angry Brigade. The new title - Adventure Everywhere: Pablo Picasso's Paris Nightlife - is the seventh book in the series.

Jeff Young’s book ‘Ghost Town: A Liverpool Shadowplay’
was shortlisted for the 2020 Costa Biography Prize. His next book has been announced - Wild Twin, which explores the author’s early adulthood hitch-hiking to Paris in the 1970s. Described by his publishers as an “Orwellian travel book…shot through with Jeff’s extraordinary, almost hallucinogenic vision”.
