Carlos Fonseca & Paul Stanbridge
Wed 23 Aug 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Fiction on the Frontiers of Science
An event for anyone who likes writers who push the boundaries of contemporary realist fiction. Paul Stanbridge's Forbidden Line is 'Don Quixote on speed', a gleeful hybrid of science, pseudo-science and ingenious philosophy. He's met his match, though, in Carlos Fonseca's Colonel Lágrimas, a tour of mathematics and 20th century history that begins with political action and ends up hooked on big data. Fasten your seatbelts.
