When: 2 November, 7pm

In 1976, four boys walked into a jungle. Only three came back alive.

The Clearing by Dan NewmanHaunted by terrifying childhood memories he doesn’t fully understand, journalist Nate Mason returns to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia where he grew up.

Back then, as the son of a diplomat, he was part of an elite social circle. But during a weekend of whispered secrets and dares in a decaying jungle mansion staffed by the descendants of slaves, Nate’s innocence was torn apart.

The survivors of that gathering blamed what happened on a myth, an unseen terror from the bush. No one believed them. But now. almost forty years later, is the truth finally about to come out?

Within hours of arriving back on the island, Nate becomes convinced he’s being followed. He soon discovers that his search for answers could cost him his sanity as well as his life, as he realises that some childhood nightmares never go away.

Can childhood nightmares haunt you for the rest of your life? How much do you need to believe in a monster for it to become real? The Clearing is a dark and atmospheric psychological thriller, full of intrigue, terror and superstition, which examines our deepest fears of the unknown. A potent mix of the friendship and bravery ofStand By Me and the betrayals and fear of Angel Heart.

The son of a globetrotting international aid worker, Newman, who was https://i2.wp.com/exhibitabooks.com/wp-content/uploads/Dan-Newman-250x300.jpgborn in England, grew up on St. Lucia in the Caribbean – where The Clearing is set – then in the Kingdoms of Lesotho and Swaziland in Southern Africa, then Canada, then England again, then Australia, and then…

Well, you get the picture. His education was similarly global; primary school beneath swaying palms in the Caribbean, secondary school in Africa at an international boarding school (witnessing apartheid throttle a nation across the border in South Africa), and then undergrad and grad school in Canada and Australia respectively.

There were starts and stops on the career track, too. He played semi professional football in Africa, and had trials at a number of clubs in London – all of whom chose to callously snuff out his boyhood dreams. (It turns out the ability to actually control a football is quite important to those who manage these teams.)

To put himself through school, Newman spent time as a sweaty mover (be nice to those guys), a plant pot cleaner (less so to them), and a beer brewer. Eventually, after taking a keen interest in journalism and heading to Australia to complete his graduate degree, Newman found a way to avoid doing any actual real work by writing copy for corporations. Later still, that became a career in corporate communications.

And that’s where he finds himself today: in Toronto, Canada, plying his trade for a Fortune 500 company.
