TWR x KCL: Should we still make things up?

In collaboration with the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture at King’s College London, we are excited to present Nadeem Aslam, Rachel Cusk and Jessie Greengrass in conversation with Lara Feigel, on 12 March 2019 at 6.30 p.m.. There will be drinks. Please reserve a free ticket here.

 

What is fiction for and how fictional should it be? What do we want from literary characters and how do we experience them? Here three acclaimed novelists will consider these questions, ranging across centuries and continents.

 

Nadeem Aslam is the author of five novels. He is the recipient of a Lannan Literary Fellowship and a Windham Campbell Prize, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. His work has been shortlisted for the IMPAC Prize and longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Born in Pakistan, he lives in England.

 

Rachel Cusk is the author of ten novels and four works of nonfiction, which have won and been shortlisted for numerous prizes. In 2015, Cusk’s version of Medea was staged at the Almeida Theatre.

 

Jessie Greengrass was born in 1982. She studied philosophy in Cambridge and London, and now lives in Northumberland with her partner and their two children. Her collection of short stories, An Account of the Decline of the Great Auk, According to One Who Saw It won the Edge Hill Prize. Her first novel, Sight, published in 2018, was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize.
