The Connected World

Rethink the world in this discussion of literature, belonging and identity with Kamila Shamsie, Andrew O'Hagan, and DBC Pierre.

The novel has traditionally explored and celebrated experiences in a singular time and place but, as we live in an increasingly connected world, how can the novel reflect this experience?

Exploring how the novel can comment on this growing and interconnected world, Kamila Shamsie, Andrew O’Hagan and DBC Pierre come together to discuss belonging, identity and charting characters whose lives are scattered across the globe in their fiction.

Chaired by Gaby Wood, Literary Director of the Booker Prize Foundation.
