Tim Parks’ new novel, The Server, is an absorbing examination of Western egocentrism in the light of the Buddhist belief that the self is an ephemeral dream. Set in the Dasgupta Institute, a severe Buddhist retreat, it follows the life of Beth Marriot, a charismatic and beautiful young woman who has been forced into the contemplative life by a catalogue of traumatic events.
Moving and fascinating, The Server is, in Tim Parks’ inimitable style, incredibly thought-provoking. Join us to celebrate its publication and listen to a fascinating talk from a novelist, translator and essayist like no other.
