Literary Landscapes: A Panel Discussion with John Sutherland – 23rd October
£5.00 – £10.00
We’re pleased to help launch this beautiful book, General Editor John Sutherland will be joined by contributors Maya Jaggi, Jared Shurin and Wayne Gooderham among others to identify what makes some landscapes as central to the tale as any character, and just as easily recognised.
Literary Landscapes draws together those well-loved authors who are synonymous with a place and time, celebrating Hardy’s Wessex, Joyce’s Dublin and Du Maurier’s Cornwall. It comes right up to date with recent bestsellers, such as Eleanor Catton’s Booker Prize winning The Luminaries and Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend.
Led by John Sutherland, a team of specialist literary critics have contributed individual essays on over 70 literary novels where landscape is as central to the tale as any character, and just as easily recognized. Entries are beautifully illustrated with archive material, original artworks, maps and photographs.
International in breadth and scope, Literary Landscapes is an enchanting read that book lovers will not be able to resist dipping into.
John Sutherland is an English academic, columnist and author, Maya Jaggi is an award-winning global cultural journalist, Jared Shurin is a literary critic who has edited many anthologies and Wayne Gooderham is a freelance writer for the Guardian and Wasafari among others.
