Essex Book Festival, 15 March 2020

I’m delighted to be joining Philip Terry at Firstsite, Colchester on 15 March for readings and conversation at the Essex Book Festival launch of his The Penguin Book of Oulipo, which I reviewed for the Guardian recently.

Here’s the blurb:

The Penguin Book of Oulipo book launch. This is the first collection in English to bring together 100 pieces of “Oulipo” writing. Editor and translator Philip Terry will be joined by novelist Tony White to read and discuss selections from the book, as well as some of their own writing inspired by the group.

I’ll be reading from The Fountain in the Forest, plus one or two gems from Philip’s wonderful anthology.
