Geoff Dyer, Marina Warner and Lisa Appignanesi in conversation

Geoff Dyer, author of works including Jeff In Venice and Death in Varanasi, and Marina Warner, author of Stranger Magic, are two of the most original and distinctive writers, each with a fascination for ideas - not in the abstract, but as they affect lives and instigate change. Both have produced genre-defying works of fiction and non-fiction that explore the connections between imagination and reality, place and identity, story and myth. In this conversation with fellow novelist, academic, and campaigner for free expression, Lisa Appignanesi, they will discuss the future of a literature that dissects and thrives on ideas.
