For the last few years, Russel has been chairing events at the Edinburgh book festival, but 2017 marks the first year Russel will appear at the festival as himself, talking about his latest book, Ed's Dead. Russel will be appearing alongside the brilliant Karolina Rmaqvist, whose novel, The White City, is "an intimate portrayal of a woman’s downfall through her complicit relationship with the world of crime." Word on the street that keeping us in check will the be absolutely fantastic Kirsty Logan.
