Literary Event, Free Event
As part of the launch of Granta 119: Britain, contributors Cynan Jones and Rachel Seiffert provide an evening of readings and conversation. Both Jones and Seiffert explore British identity with stories of adolescent boys reaching towards adulthood. They explore the delicate human connections within the sometimes brutal context of historical and contemporary Britain and the moments that shape our identities.
Cynan Jones' first novel, The Long Dry, was published in 2006 and went on to win a Betty Trask Award from the Society of Authors. The book has since been translated into Italian, Arabic and French. He is also the author of Everything I Found on the Beach.
Rachel Seiffert's novel The Dark Room was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. She has also written an acclaimed collection of short stories, Field Study, and the novel Afterwards.
