Please note the Will Self event is sold out, but that he will be appearing as part of a fantastic line-up at the Headstuff Lectures on Wed 24th May at 8pm at Smock Alley Theatre. More info here.
Described by the Guardian as ‘the most daring and delightful novelist of his generation,’ Will Self comes to ILFDublin. A novelist, journalist, political commentator and television personality, Will Self ‘doesn’t write fiction for people to identify with… I write to astonish people.’ Often fierce, memorably grotesque and outlandish, his novels include The Butt, winner of the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction 2008, and Umbrella, short-listed for the Man Booker prize 2012. His latest novel Phone is wildly entertaining, a brilliant skewering of the contemporary world. This event is being recorded for broadcast on The Book Show (with Sinéad Gleeson) for RTÉ Radio 1.
