These two young, dynamic writers share much in common. Both are published poets, as well as novelists, and they will be joining us to discuss their latest books – two biting satires following the logical absurdities of life in the city for Generation Rent. In Luke Kennard’s The Transition, Karl avoids a jail sentence for accidental fraud, by committing to a scheme where he and his wife live with an older, more successful couple, to see what they can learn. The Adulterants by Joe Dunthorne features Ray, a freelance tech journalist who, despite marriage and a baby on the way, still hasn’t grown up. Presented in partnership with the Centre for New Writing.

Suitable for age 16+, as the event will contain discussion of sexual content and drug abuse.
