John Lanchester, Author,The Wall In Conversation withMichael Lewis, Author,Moneyball,The Blind SideandThe Fifth Risk
This program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.
Even with just a two-word title, John Lanchester's newest novel, The Wall, evokes the political divisiveness our time. In this dystopian future, current political issues are taken to their logical extremes: issues of mass immigration (and populist reactions against it) are cast as symptoms of the ultimate problem of climate change. Lanchester's ability to merge reality with metaphor make the novel a poignant wake-up call in the context of global politics, which are often too shortsighted.
Join us with moderator Michael Lewis, best-selling author of Moneyball & The Big Short, for a witty back-and-forth between two authors who both have a knack for understanding some of the largest political issues of our time-and more importantly, know how to communicate them in an effective & engaging way.
