Talking Literature with Rob Newman at the University of Gloucestershire this Wednesday

March 25, 2014

robnewmanpressphoto1I’m excited to be talking literature with Rob Newman at the University of Gloucestershire tomorrow night. Rob is a “goosepimplingly brilliant” comedian, the author of four acclaimed novels, and the star of television shows including The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Newman and Baddiel in Pieces, A History of Oil, and A History of the World Backwards. We’ll be talking literature, politics, philosophy, history, and his new novel, The Trade Secret – an outrageous, continent-crossing epic that is described by The Guardian as “a rollicking Elizabethan yarn that has much to say about the origins and nature of modern capitalism.”

19:30, FCH TC001, Wednesday March 26th 2014
Tickets are £5 (free to UoG students and staff) and you can book your place here.
In the meantime, here’s Rob explaining why the First World War should be remembered as an invasion of Iraq.
