Literary Friction Podcast Live: Deborah Levy in conversation
We're delighted to welcome acclaimed author and firm Foyles favourite Deborah Levy for a live Literary Friction podcast recording, discussing her Booker Prize longlisted new novel The Man Who Saw Everything.
Introducing us to her memorable protagonist Saul Adler and his unforgettable journey backwards and forwards in time, Levy will discuss the temporally elusive nature of her new narrative: an electrifying, spiralling novel set across London's Abbey Road and Berlin at the fall of the Wall, where carelessness, what we fail to see, a could-be Stasi agent and sightings of a jaguar haunt the borders of history and fiction. She will set the contemporary vision of Europe against that of 1989, and examine the psychological effects of history on both our personal and political lives.
Literary Friction is a lively conversation about books and ideas, hosted by friends Carrie Plitt, a literary agent, and Octavia Bright, a writer and academic. Each month we interview an author about their book and build the show around a related theme – anything from friendship to masculinity to corpses. The show is available on NTS Radio and all major podcast platforms.
This event will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
