Felix Culpa: Jeremy Gavron w/ Olivia Laing
25 April @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm| £6
In FELIX CULPA, Jeremy Gavron conjures up a work of extraordinary literary alchemy: a novel made out of lines taken from a hundred great works of literature.
It follows a writer on the trail of a boy recently released from prison, who has been discovered dead in the cold north, frozen and alone. It asks what happens when we lose the narrative of our own life, and fall into someone else’s.
Jeremy Gavron is the author of six books, including the novels THE BOOK OF ISRAEL, winner of the Encore Award, and AN ACRE OF BARREN GROUND; and A WOMAN ON THE EDGE OF TIME, a memoir about his mother’s suicide. He lives in London, and teaches on the MFA at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina.
Olivia Laing is a writer and critic. She’s the author of TO THE RIVER, THE TRIP TO ECHO SPRING and THE LONELY CITY. Her debut novel, CRUDO, will be published in June.
