Poet Robin Robertson in conversation.

A chance to hear Robin Robertson talk about his own work and in particular The Long Take from which he will read extracts.  A noir narrative written with the intensity and power of poetry, The Long Take is one of the most remarkable – and unclassifiable – books of recent years. Shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize this is an epic and lyric mix of verse and prose.

'A beautiful, vigorous and achingly melancholy hymn to the common man that is as unexpected as it is daring' John Banville, Guardian
