Literature Live! will launch Amitav Ghosh‘s much anticipated new novel, Gun Island on Monday, June 17, at 6.30 pm at Royal Opera House.
Gun Island has as diverse a cast of characters as you can imagine, from a Brooklyn–based dealer in rare books to a king cobra in Kolkata. This is a story about a world in which creatures and beings of every kind have been torn loose from their natural habitats by the catastrophic process of climate change.
Amitav Ghosh will be in conversation with the internationally acclaimed film-maker Shekhar Kapur.
Seating as usual, is on a first come first serve basis, so do come early.
