Hisham Matar, William Fiennes, Joan Bakewell, Andrew O’Hagan & more

Hotel du Lac by Anita Brookner

There are some especially good talks coming up over the next month at one of our favourite bookshops, Lutyens & Rubinstein.  If you’re free tonight, Thursday, Emma Cline, winner of the 2014 Paris Review Plimpton Prize for Fiction will discuss her book The Girls with Alexandra Heminsley.  On 21st June, in light of Anita Brookner’s death in March of this year and the re-publication of her novels, Juliet Annan (her editor and Publishing Director of Fig Tree Books), author and publisher Carmen Callil (found of Virago Books), Rachel Cooke and Tessa Hadley will discuss her works. On 28th June, Hisham Matar discusses his latest book The Return about his visit to Libya with fellow author William Fiennes.  And if you’re in the mood for further literary inspiration, then don’t miss the talks coming up at St Mary’s Church, Primrose Hill (from 15th June to 6th July) including Andrew O’Hagan & Jonathan Coe on the State-of-the-Nation Novel, Charles Moore and Joan Bakewell on Margaret Thatcher and Andrea Wulf on Humboldt’s Invention of Nature.
