Nigel Warburton and Slavoj Zizek join Jela Krecic to discuss her new novel, 'None Like Her', a hapless tale of the fruitless search for a perfect partner.
The book is published this November by Istros Books in cooperation with Peter Owen Publishers as part of the Peter Owen World Series: Slovenian Season, and advance copies will be available on the night.
Jela Krečič Žižek is a Slovene journalist, columnist and philosopher. She writes for the largest national newspaper Delo, where she notably published an exclusive interview with Julian Assange in 2013. Her philosophical research focuses on films, TV series and aesthetics, and she has conducted several studies on these topics. She has also co-edited a number of anthologies on contemporary TV series and on the German American film director, Ernst Lubitsch. Her essay was published in the English anthology 'Lubitsch Can't Wait' (Columbia University Press, 2014). None Like Her, her literary début, sold out quickly after its publication and was very well received in the media.
When & Where
Conway Hall is the landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life.
Conway Hall is owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society, which was first opened in 1929. The name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway (1832 - 1907), anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.
Conway Hall now hosts a wide variety of lectures, classical music, classes, performances, community and social events. It is renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought.
Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series (now Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) - are the longest-running of their kind in Europe. The ethos of "affordable classical music for all" still remains.
Conway Hall reserves the right to change the programme and personnel of its events without notice in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
