Reif Larsen’s debut The Selected Works of T.S.Spivet was a whimsical coming-of-age tale that garnered huge critical acclaim, and was adapted for the screen by the makers of Amelie. The likes of Stephen King called it

a book that does the impossible: it combines Mark Twain, Thomas Pynchon, and Little Miss Sunshine”.

Join us for an evening with Reif as he takes us through his gripping, utterly original new novel I Am Radar. Beginning at Radar’s perplexing birth in 1975 – a black child mysteriously born to white parents – the book launches its readers around the globe and throughout history. As Radar falls in with a secretive group of puppeteers and scientists, he is soon forced to confront the true nature of his identity.

Brace yourselves, Reif has a few surprises in store.
