Join award-winning author Alan Hollinghurst to celebrate his first novel in over a decade.

Our Evenings follows schoolboy Dave Win as he navigates the theatre, class, sexuality, and as his life develops, offers a portrait of modern England through the lens of one man’s acutely observed and often unnerving experience.

Alan Hollinghurst is the author of several novels, including Booker Prize-winning The Line of Beauty, The Folding Star, which won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and the Somerset Maugham Award-winning The Swimming Pool Library.

Chaired by Tom Crewe.
