ILFDublin OFF THE PAGE event in October
OFF THE PAGE presents JONATHAN FRANZEN IN CONVERSATION
International Literature Festival Dublin returns this autumn with its OFF THE PAGE series with a exclusive Dublin appearance by American novelist Jonathan Franzen. Author of The Corrections and Freedom, and the first novelist to grace the cover of Time magazine in 20 years, Franzen has emerged as the leading American novelist of his generation.His latest novel, Purity, is centred on Pip Tyler – real name Purity – who, fresh out of college, embarks on a quest to find the identity of her father. Through an internship with the Sunlight Project in Bolivia and under the auspices of its charismatic frontman, Andres Wolf, Pip is drawn into a complex web of activism and idealism, in a novel of trademark historical and geographical sweep.
With Purity, Franzen has written another masterwork combining family loyalties and murder, comedy and moral complexity.
Tickets are €20/€18
