CANCELLED

Due to sudden illness Mark is unable to make the trip to Bristol tonight. He sends his apologies and is very disappointed to have to cancel as this late stage. All ticket buyers will be refunded.

Mark Greif is a founder and editor of N+1 magazine– one of the new wave of political journals helping to transform debate in the US. His first book, The Age of the Crisis of Man, was both a Wall Street Journal and New Statesman Book of the Year for 2015. One reviewer described it as ‘a brilliant contribution to the history of ideas, one of the rare books that reshapes the present by reinterpreting the past.’ His new book, Against Everything: On Dishonest Times, looks at how we might live an honest life in dishonest times examining, amongst others, the impact of the Occupy movement, the crisis of policing, the tyranny of exercise, food snobbery, the sexualisation of childhood (and everything else), and offers a guide to everyday life under twenty-first century capitalism. Already praised by Zadie Smith, and compared to Susan Sontag’s Against Interpretation and Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem, this is a rare opportunity to hear one of the most important of the new American intellectuals.
