CANCELLED - Graham Swift: England and Other Stories

Wednesday 10th September 2014 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

SORRY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES

It was 1983 that saw Graham Swift acclaimed as part of a golden generation: he was on Granta magazine's first Best of Young British Novelists list (which also featured Julian Barnes, Kazuo Ishiguro, Pat Barker and Ian McEwan).

In the same year he published Waterland, which the Daily Telegraph described as 'so good that whether or not it wins the Booker Prize it is almost of no consequence'.

After winning numerous other prizes, he was to win the Booker in 1996 with Last Orders - the film adaptation of which starred Michael Caine - cementing his place among Britain's finest post-war writers.

Graham will be in conversation with Boyd Tonkin, Senior Writer at the Independent , discussing England and Other Stories, his first short story collection in over 30 years.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road

Tickets: Sorry, this event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances

Please note that no physical tickets will be issued; the email despatch confirmation you receive will be proof of your booking.

Read our exclusive interview, in which Graham talks about how his own Englishness makes him feel like both an insider and an outsider, how abandoning the short story for novels all those years ago took him by surprise and why words are not the most important thing in literature.
