This month at Sceptre Salon David Mitchell, Ned Beauman and Jenn Ashworth mull over time, death and mortality. Such a morbid discussion has never been so alluring.
David Mitchell was chosen as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists in 2003. He is the award-winning author whose novels include Cloud Atlas, The Bone Clocks and most recently Slade House. Death and immortality are two areas that continue to fascinate him.
Ned Beauman, along with Jenn Ashworth, was picked by BBC2's The Culture Show as one of the twelve Best New British Writers in 2011. The author of Boxer, Beetle and the Teleportation Accident, his most recent book, Glow, gave its main character a 25-hour body clock. Thie result is an entirely different reality.
Jenn Ashworth's previous books include A Kind of Intimacy and The Friday Gospels. Her new novel Fell, is narrated from an unusual perspective – the combined voices of a husband and wife who are no longer alive – and explores what ordinary, imperfect people do in the face of mortality.
The evening will be chaired by author and editor Erica Wagner.
