Were I able to organise baby-siting and so on I would be there with bells on (but without the bells, cos it’d be rude to be jingle jangling.)
tonight: Fiction at the Newsroom with James Meek & Gordon Burn
Authors James Meek and Gordon Burn have placed news at the heart of their current novels We Are Now Beginning Our Descent (Canongate) and Born Yesterday (Faber). Tonight they read short sections from and talk about the writing of their novels with Lane Ashfeldt, in the appropriate surrounds of the Newsroom.
“Gordon Burn is right. The news is now a novel” Mark Lawson
