About this event

Whitbread Prize for Biography winner D J Taylor talks about the figures involved at Horizon magazine in the forties - the most significant platform for emerging writers and artists. Among the contributors were W H Auden, Cecil Beaton, John Betjeman, Kenneth Clark, John Craxton, Cecil Day-Lewis, Lawrence Durrell, T S Eliot, E M Forster, Lucian Freud, Graham Greene, Barbara Hepworth, Aldous Huxley, Christopher Isherwood, Augustus John, Paul Klee, Osbert Lancaster, André Masson, Henry Miller, Nancy Mitford, Henry Moore, Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, George Orwell, John Piper, J B Priestley, Herbert Read, Bertrand Russell, Vita Sackville-West, Jean-Paul Satre, Osbert Sitwell, Graham Sutherland, Dylan Thomas, Peter Ustinov, H G Wells, Virginia Woolf and a young James Lord.

The story will be told underneath the wonderful Alberto Giacometti bronze chandelier which hung in the Horizon office in Bedford Square, London.

“Taylor is marking out a territory as distinct and disturbing as Graham Greene.” HILARY MANTEL

In addition to his book on Horizon the Times Book of the Year - Lost Girls, he will be signing his most recent book Stewkey Blues.
