Truth in Fiction
Wedneday, 4 May, 7pm, Lady Violet Room,
National Liberal Club, London SW1 2HE
Join us for a thought-provoking, fascinating and exciting evening of readings and discussions about truth in fiction, and about novels that leave us wondering how much is fact and how much is fiction.
Paul E. Hardisty’s debut thriller The Abrupt Physics of Dying, set in Yemen, was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger, and was a Telegraph best thriller of 2015.
Edward Wilson is the critically acclaimed author of the Catesby series of spy thrillers that focus on espionage and the Cold War, including his latest,A Very British Ending. The Irish Independent says, ‘Edward Wilson seems poised to inherit the mantle of John le Carré as master of the British spy thriller’.
Yusuf Toropov’s debut thriller, Jihadi: A Love Story, questions the nature of terrorism and nationalism, good and evil, and asks some big questions that prompts us to reassess everything we thought we knew.
The evening will be chaired by Sunny Singh, whose latest novel Hotel Arcadia explores themes of surveillance, photography, ethics of journalism during the terrorist siege of a five star hotel.
