Amit Chaudhuri and Craig Taylor in conversation with Alex Clark

Tuesday 12th February 2013 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

In 1999, celebrated novelist and musician Amit Chaudhuri moved from England back to his birthplace of Calcutta, the city he had made his name writing about. But what does it mean to 'move back' to a place you've never really lived in? Lyrical, observant and profound, Calcutta: Two Years in the City is a personal account of life in one of our greatest but frequently misunderstood cities, as well as a superb snapshot of contemporary urban life in all its guises.
In 2000, writer Craig Taylor moved from his native Canada to London. He spent five years speaking to the people who make up this great city - squatters, pilots, the woman who is the voice of the London Underground - for what has now become Londoners, a classic book about the capital.

In conversation with writer and critic Alex Clark, both writers will examine what it means to write about place, discussing the challenges involved in showing familiar cities anew.
