True Stories: Francis Spufford and Daniel Soar

Tickets Available
London Review Bookshop

Francis Spufford, award-winning author of Golden Hill and Red Plenty, explores the complicated relationship between story-telling and truth-telling in his first collection of essays, True Stories and Other Essays (Yale). Ranging freely across topics such as the medieval legends of Cockaigne, the Christian apologetics of C. S. Lewis, and the tomb of Ayatollah Khomeini, Spufford provides both fresh observations and thought-provoking insights.

Spufford will discuss True Stories with Daniel Soar, editor at the London Review of Books.
