Event Details

Although we associate Thomas Hardy strongly with the rural Dorset of his novels, he was, in his own words, ‘half a Londoner’, having lived in the capital for five years in his early twenties, and being constantly drawn towards London throughout the rest of his life.

Mark Ford, Professor of English and American Literature at UCL, explores the metropolitan dimension of Hardy’s life and work in his latest book. He will be at the shop in conversation with Oxford Professor of English Literature Seamus Perry, who writes of Thomas Hardy: Half a Londoner ‘[Ford] discusses Hardy with great urbanity and tact, and demonstrates throughout the literary insight of someone who is himself a distinguished poet. Hardy s many admirers will find a great deal to relish in this astute, original, and highly enjoyable book.’
