An Intimate Evening with Andrew O’Hagan

Saturday, October 21
8:00pm - 9:30pm
Revue Stage

1601 Johnston St.

Scottish author Andrew O’Hagan’s father once scolded him for telling an interviewer there were no books in the house when he was growing up. His father said: “There was a book. It was green. It was on top of the fridge for ages.” It was the phonebook. Unlikely beginnings for an author who was voted one of Granta’s Best Young British Novelists and nominated for the Man Booker Prize three times. Tonight, join O’Hagan as he tackles the porousness between genius and madness and the notion of personality in the digital age, the subject of his new book about three elusive individuals, Julian Assange among them. This is your chance to hear from one of the most important and witty voices of his generation.
