‘Wonders Will Never Cease’: Robert Irwin and Nicholas Lezard
Thu 3 November 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Renowned arabist and regular LRB contributor Robert Irwin will be at the shop to read from and talk about his latest novel Wonders Will Never Cease (Dedalus), his return to fiction after a break of 17 years. Set during the Wars of the Roses, the book promises to be a mind-altering blend of fantasy, fact and fiction, encompassing the Swordsman’s Pentacle, the Draug, the Miraculous Cauldron, the Curse of the Roasted Goose, the Talking Head and the Museum of Skulls. Irwin will be in conversation with Nicholas Lezard, whose weekly ‘Choice’ column in the Saturday Guardian has made him Britain’s most influential book reviewer.
