Over a year ago The Golden Hour played a rollicking gig at the Spiegeltent at the Edinburgh Book Festival. The show featured author of Bevel and performer of uncommon fineness William Letford, Hugo Award winner Kelly Link and the writer of Submarine Joe Dunthorne, plus high-octane sets from Billy Liar, Mikel Krummins and Mammal, and Earl Grey… all of whom ‘brought it.’ What is it? Great times!

Here, for those who missed it and those who miss it, is footage from that insanely fun evening. Yes, Virginia, everybody was dancing.

Billy Liar – words and music, combined!:

William Letford – I like to say the poems one after the other:

Mikel and Mammal – the kitchen ceiling had collapsed:

Kelly Link – the more I tell it the less it bothers me:

Joe Dunthorne – choose your own adventure:
