In this month’s episode we speak to Gabriel Josipovici. Gabriel’s first novel was published in 1968 and his writing career spans over twenty works of fiction, numerous works of criticism and non-fiction, and regular articles in the TLS.
Continuing our current coronavirus set-up, Gabriel joined us remotely from Sussex and our discussion covered how his writing has developed over six decades, the perils of writing an unexpectedly backlash-provoking book on Modernism, the creative possibilities revealed by examining painters & composers and much more.
The ‘acceptably long’ novel we briefly discussed was George Perec’s ‘Life: A User’s Manual’
