emperor coverDan Gunn‘s new novel, The Emperor of Ice Cream, has just been published by Seagull Press.

It is an epic tale of Scots-Italians, the rise of fascism, and the pleasures of pistachio ice-cream. There was a great launch party last week, organised by the creative writing club and hosted by Andrew Davidson. And the extraordinary Lydia Davies discusses the novel in a long interview with Dan in Music and Literature.
