Born into Alexandria’s Sephardic Jewish community and now resident in New York, André Aciman is best known for his novels, in particular Call Me by Your Name. His latest, Homo Irrealis (Faber and Faber) is a collection of essays on subjects as diverse as Freud, W.G.Sebald, the films of Eric Rohmer and the cityscapes of Alexandria and St Petersburg.

Aciman will be in conversation with writer and critic Brian Dillon, author of Suppose a Sentence, In the Dark Room and, most appropriately here, Essayism.
