Tonight, I'll be at the South Bank Centre for A different window: reading European fiction, in which Aleksandar Hemon (editor of Best European Fiction 2010), AS Byatt and Tom McCarthy will discuss their personal readings of European writers such as Kafka and Nabokov and the impact of European fiction on their own writing. Sadly, I understand that the event is now sold out.
However, on Wednesday, another Best European Fiction 2010 event is happening with Andrej Blatnik, Jon Fosse and Christine Montalbetti discussing their work and reading from BEF 2010. The Monday event is really just a prequel for the Wednesday event so, if you've missed out on tonight's gig, make sure you don't miss out on Wednesday's session where you'll have a real chance to engage with some very exciting writers. More at the South Bank website.
