The North Water is causing a literary sensation: it’s currently one of the New York Times 10 Best Books of 2016, and was longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize. You can read more about the novel here:
A visceral and emotional piece of literary art, The North Water has been described by Andrew Haigh, the director of the forthcoming BBC adaptation of the novel, as “a darkly brilliant piece of work, propelled by a vision of the world that is both beautiful and brutal. It feels bracingly modern and is piercingly perceptive about the nature of what drives us all”.
This event offers the opportunity to hear McGuire respond to a number of searching questions about creative writing method and literary composition – all from Middlesex students.
Time will also be allotted for questions from the audience.
