Oxford literature festival to include A-list authors

18th January 2010

Prolific authors John Le Carré and Nick Hornby are among those set to lecture at the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival this year.

Held at Oxford University's Christ Church college, the writers will be joined by a number of other literary giants including Hanif Kureishi and Lynn Barber.

Martin Amis, Philip Pullman and Man Booker Prize-winner Hilary Mantel will also be in attendance.

Running from Saturday March 20th until Sunday March 28th, there will be almost 100 events - all costing between £5 and £10.

Pullman is expected to talk about his upcoming novel The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ.

The book, which is set to be published this Easter, controversially denies that Jesus was the son of God.

Pullman argues that St Paul came up with the story that Jesus has a link to the almighty creator.

'Paul was a literary and imaginative genius of the first order who has probably had more influence on the history of the world than any other human being, Jesus certainly included,' he claimed, when questioned about the new novel last year.
