Book tickets asap for this hot-tipped evening with Malcom Gladwell as he introduces his new book, Talking to Strangers at the Royal Festival Hall. The event will delve into the subject of the unfamiliar – why are we so bad at judging someone, reading a face, or detecting a lie? Why do we so often fail to ‘get’ other people? Covering everything from the spy who spent years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon to the suicide of the poet Sylvia Plath, there might be more to a stranger than meets the eye.
