poetryEast is an ongoing series of cultural events at the LBC, exploring the meaning and value of the imagination. Evie Wyld and Max Porter inaugurate a series on the modern novel, in association with the London Review of Books.
Max Porterâ€™s Grief is the Thing With Feathers, a meditation on grief and loss and love, is â€˜a perfect summation of what it means to lose someone but still to love the worldâ€™ (Guardian). Evie Wyld was on Granta magazineâ€™s once-in-a-decade list of â€˜Best of Young British Novelistsâ€™ in 2013. Her most recent novel, All the Birds, Singing, won the Miles Franklin award, Australiaâ€™s most prestigious literature prize, while the Independent called her a â€˜young writer with talent to burnâ€™.
One of a series of evenings in association with the London Review of Books â€“ also featuring James Meek, John Lanchester and Andrew O'Hagan. 'Best-ever' subscription rates to the London Review of Books, one of the world's foremost literary magazines, will be available at these events.
