Award-winning novelist Jon McGregor will discuss his latest book Lean Fall Stand, a stunning novel that tenderly unpicks the notion of heroism and explores the human impulse to tell our stories – even when words fail us. The event will be chaired by Professor Jean McNeil, Director of Creative Writing at UEA.
Jon McGregor is the author of five novels and two story collections. He is the winner of the IMPAC Dublin Literature Prize and the Betty Trask Prize, and has been longlisted for the Booker Prize three times. He is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Nottingham, where he edits The Letters Page. He was born in Bermuda in 1976, grew up in Norfolk, and now lives in Nottingham.
