Improbable Topographies : A Psychogeographical Evening with Geoff Nicholson and Travis Elborough

About this event

First published by J G Ballard in the legendary counter-cultural art and literary magazine Ambit, Geoff Nicholson is the author of over twenty books, including the acclaimed novels Bleeding London, Gravity’s Volkswagen and The City Under the Skin and such classics of psychogeographical non-fiction as The Lost Art of Walking and Walking in Ruins, saluted by the Los Angeles Review of Books for doing ‘for perambulation what Robert Burton did for dejection in The Anatomy of Melancholy’.

Acclaimed by the Guardian as 'one of the country’s ‘finest pop culture historians’, Travis Elborough is the award-winning author of A Walk in the Park, Through the Looking Glasses: The Spectacular Life of Spectacles, Atlas of Improbable Places and Atlas of Vanishing Places.

Join them for an evening celebrating maps, memory, place, ruins and the pleasures of putting one foot in front of another and getting lost in urban and, indeed, suburban spaces.

Books from both authors will be able to purchase on the evening.
