Writers on Truth, Lies and Fiction

Writers on Truth, Lies and Fiction

Waterstones are delighted to welcome a truly world-class panel of writers to Oxford to discuss one of the most hotly debated issues in the arts today: reality versus fiction lies at the heart of the current literary debate.

We live in a world of docu-drama, the 'real life' story. Works of art, novels, films, are frequently bolstered by reference to the autobiography of the creator, or to underlying 'fact'. Where does that leave the imagination? And who gets to define that parameters of 'reality' and 'fiction' anyway?

 

The panel includes: Joanna Kavenna, Benjamin Markovits and Gabriel Josipovci.
