Book Launch: MY WEIL (a novel) Lars Iyer in conversation with Adam Potts

Date/Time: Thursday 19 October, 7pm to 8pm

Venue: Culture Lab, Newcastle University

‘Lars Iyer does it again! My Weil is a melancholic, yet joyful story of lost PhD students hoping to find themselves in modern Manchester, lured there by the music of Joy Division, The Smiths and The Fall, enthralled by a student named after Simone Weil. As ever, it's thoughtful, punchy, and riotously funny - and will make you yearn for the halcyon days of the Hacienda.’ Juliet Jacques

Lars Iyer is the author of the novels in the Spurious trilogy, and more recently, the widely acclaimed Wittgenstein Jr., and Nietzsche and the Burbs. He is Professor of Creative Writing at Newcastle University.
