In this unique conversation, clinical psychologist Tanya Byron will cut through the layers surrounding the public image of acclaimed writer Lionel Shriver, author of the global bestseller We Need to Talk About Kevin. Journalists characterise her as an eccentric figure of astonishing will power and self-discipline, running nine miles a day and breaking her fast only at 11pm. But who is the ‘real’ Lionel Shriver?
Addressing many of the complex and controversial issues that Shriver tackles in her works, this session will ask difficult questions... Do you have to be a monster to think like a monster? What attracts us to these figures – and what does it say about us to enjoy reading about them? What does it mean to love someone you don’t like, or to give up on someone you love?
We Need to Talk about Lionel Shriver will take place at Cecil Sharpe House on Tuesday 17 Jan. Save 20% on your tickets with code LONDONCALLING20 when you book online.
