Granta 129: Fate
Granta Presents: Will Self and Iain Sinclair on JG Ballard
25th November 2014, 7pm, at Notting Hill Community Church, Kensington Park Rd, London W11 2ES. Tickets are £8 including a glass of wine, and available from Lutyens & Rubinstein here.
To celebrate the launch of Granta 129: Fate, two of Britain’s best contemporary writers will discuss the legacy of one of our most important post-war literary figures.
In his piece in the issue, ‘Key Stroke,’ Will Self reimagines J.G Ballard’s last days, striking the keys of the same typewriter that once sat under Ballard’s fingers. Self has elsewhere described Ballard’s body of work as ‘the most significant single contribution to English literature in the past half-century’. On the 25th he’ll discuss Ballard’s legacy with Iain Sinclair, whose book on David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Ballard’s Crash was hailed by John Gray in the New Statesman as ‘the most intelligent guide yet to Ballard’s work’.
