Event description
Join us for a livestreamed event with award-winning political writer Pankaj Mishra in conversation with the Guardian's Aditya Chakrabortty.

About this event

Mishra is known for his writing on the far-reaching impacts of globalization, nationalism and populism - themes he explores in the acclaimed Age of Anger, and his debut novel The Romantics.

Run and Hide, his first novel in two decades, is set in modern India. It follows a group of overachieving friends who, after attending the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, go to unimaginable lengths to succeed. In private jets and exotic destinations they play out their Gatsby fantasies - but in reality, they are about to pay for their transgressions.

With Guardian columnist Aditya Chakrabortty, Mishra will explore how both fiction and nonfiction can respond to our age of turmoil and breakdown, and hold up a mirror to the world in which we live. He will also be answering your questions at this livestreamed event.
