Ben Lerner - 10:04

Wednesday 14th January 2015 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Meet the award-winning poet and innovative novelist Ben Lerner as he offers insight into his expanding literary repertoire and discusses his new novel 10:04.

An observational novel that takes place within the cracks between reality and fantasy, 10:04 is an intensely intelligent examination of contemporary western culture. The book follows modern-day New Yorker 'Ben' - a writer whose situation has an uncanny likeness to Lerner himself - and his humourous insights into the tussle between his biological mortality and literary afterlife. Lerner's original writing style places this experimental new work at the forefront of contemporary literature and exposes the reader to the fabricated and fraudulent nature of memory and reality.

Lerner's debut novel Leaving the Atocha Station received much critical acclaim, marking him out as a talented experimental writer of multiple forms, and has been described as 'beautiful and touching and precise' for its examination of experience by the Guardian.

Enjoy an evening with one of modern literature's rising stars, absorbing Lerner's eloquent insights into literature, art and the world itself.

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

Reviews

The event was very enjoyable. I had expected the author to be the focus of the event - this was true and Foyles seemed to have done a great job in letting Lerner speak in an open and relaxed way. But what was even better was the quality of the host and the audience. The dialogue and Q&A that came through were very fast-paced and fascinating.
