Will Self: From Kafka to ‘Umbrella’

October 7, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| $8 - $10

will self credit polly bolandUmbrellaWill Self is a writer who has occupied the public realm with a dazzling array of books, broadcasts, journalism and talks. His books, including the Booker-shortlisted Umbrella, are vivid and innovative. His broadcasts are thoughtful and sometimes outspoken and his journalism covers an extraordinary range of subjects, from Margaret Thatcher’s funeral to pessimism and all points between.

Will Self returns to the Festival to talk about his recent work: his novel, ‘Umbrella’ and his digital essay on Franz Kafka. He will also talk about urbanism and psychogeography and any other topical subjects that demand discussion and are worthy of considered thought. He will, as ever, be suitably challenging and the question and answer session is likely to be lively, invigorating and unpredictable.
