Marlon James: A Fantastical Star

What does a writer do once they’ve won the Booker Prize? If you’re the indefatigable Marlon James, you embark on a wildly ambitious series that defies easy characterisation. The second in the Dark Star trilogy Moon Witch, Spider King draws inventively on African mythology and fantasy to tell us the story of the witch Sologon, who bows to no man. An hour spent with the unique mind of Marlon James is an hour you won’t forget. Join him and Jess Brough this evening.
