The Goldsmiths Writers' Centre in association with the New Statesman presents Adam Thirlwell
Adam Thirlwell will read from his new novel, Lurid & Cute, and reflect on the art of fiction.
Lurid & Cute is a simple story of mayhem and ennui, almost a caper, but told with such satisfying ironies and verbal dexterity that everything is technicolor again. So alive, so inventive, so very good.
- Joshua Ferris, author of 'To Rise Again at a Decent Hour'
Adam Thirlwell is the author of three novels, Politics, The Escape and Lurid & Cute; a novella, Kapow!; and a project including an essay-book – which won a Somerset Maugham Award – and a compendium of translations edited for McSweeney’s. His work is translated into thirty languages. He has twice been selected as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists.
