If you’re in Central on Monday lunchtime, you could spend half an hour queueing up with the office drones for a bowl of instant noodles. Alternatively you could drop into Bookazine on the third floor of Prince’s Building, where prize-winning Irish author Colm Tóibín will be signing books including his latest novel Brooklyn. Tóibín has been short-listed for the Man Booker Prize and is winner of the Los Angeles Times Novel of the Year, so he is likely to be far more stimulating than even the most MSG-laden noodle dish. The time: Monday 16th November, from 12:30 to 2:00pm.
