In Conversation with Will Self
Writers’ Centre Norwich
17 May 7.30pm – 10.57pm
Novelist and columnist Will Self is that rare thing; a media personality with real intellectual clout. Self is endlessly inventive, recently reaching new heights with the Booker shortlisted Umbrella. The story follows a psychiatrist’s treatment of a feminist suffering from sleeping sickness and is an experimental investigation of the modern world that zig-zags through time. Witness Self’s sharp wit and fierce intelligence firsthand at the Festival.
