Marina Warner (2016 Event)
Marina Warner's defining, shapeshifting presence in British literature finds new form in a book of short stories, Fly Away Home. Currently Professor of English at Birkbeck College, Warner was also chair of the Man Booker International Prize jury in 2015. These elegant short stories tread a fine line between the natural and supernatural, conjuring up sensuality, sentimentality and sadism in an array of vibrant characters. In this event, filmed live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival, she discusses her work with Kirsty Logan.
