Will Self in conversation with Martin Amis

Time, death, R. D. Laing, modernism, consciousness, madness and civilisation...and umbrellas. “Few writers would have the artistic effrontery to offer us a novel as daring, exuberant and [...] dense,” writes John Banville. Join one of Britain’s most acclaimed and influential journalists, Will Self for a discussion of his polyphonic, epoch-hopping, Booker-shortlisted latest novel. With author and critic Martin Amis.  Will Self is the author of six short-story collections, a book of novellas, eight novels, and six collections of journalism. His work has won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction and the Aga Khan Prize for Fiction. Umbrella was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.
