Devorah Baum & Hisham Matar: On MarriageWednesday 17 May 2023, 7 p.m. · 50 minutes
Marriage has been an institution for centuries but why this highly contested and ancient practice has remained relevant to so many is by no means certain. What are we really talking about when we talk about marriage? And what are we really doing when we say, 'I do'? In On Marriage (Hamish Hamilton), Devorah Baum draws on philosophy, film, fiction, comedy, psychoanalysis, music and poetry, to consider the marriage plot.
Baum was in conversation with Hisham Matar.
