Tom McCarthy is a novelist and artist whose first two novels, Remainder and Men In Space, were published internationally to much acclaim. Remainder, winner of the Believer Prize 2008, has been adapted for film by FILM 4, and his novel C was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2010 and went on to win the Win Windham-Campbell award in 2013. His latest novel, 2015's Satin Island, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and for the Goldsmith Prize. Tom is also known for the reports, manifestos and media interventions that he has made as General Secretary of the International Necronautical Society (INS), a semi-fictitious avant-garde network.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear Tom McCarthy in conversation with Julia Jordan (UCL English). They will discuss urban space and Tom’s latest novel, Satin Island, amongst other things.
