Is he officially a National Treasure yet? Did you read Victoria Coren’s piece about him in The Observer at the weekend? Didn’t it make you wish you could sit down and talk to Rupert Everett about things like sex and Oscar Wilde and books and ageing and vanity and Hollywood and so on, yourself. And given that that can’t happen, and that you’d want him to do most of the talking anyway, isn’t buying tickets for this event, a talk by Everett at the London Lit Festival, the next best thing. In it, Everett will be discussing his career and his memoirs, his role as Wilde in David Hare’s The Judas Kiss, and the nature of reputation. Witty, brutally honest, acerbic, no nonsense, sharply observant: Everett is known for these qualities on the page and in speech, so a talk by him promises to be a goodie. If you want to go, though, do book now. Not surprisingly, many of the tickets have gone already, including all those in the stalls, but there are still tickets in the rear stalls available so get clicking.
