Incredible Shrinking Man

On Tuesday 11 July, London’s Barbican Cinema is screening The Incredible Shrinking Man – a brilliant fable of 1950s existential anxiety that takes in everything from atomic dust-clouds to monstrous spider battles to the dizzying infinity of the cosmos. I’m doing a brief introduction.  Don’t miss this opportunity to see it on the big screen – book here.

Anywhere near Sydney next week? Come to the Sydney Writers Festival on 22-28 May!

I’ll be talking about At the Existentialist Cafe on Sunday 28 May at 10.00 am, though this event is now sold out.  And on Thursday 25 May at 11.00, I’m on the Curiosity stage sharing my enthusiasm for Bambi – the existentialist hero.  Just turn up on the day for that one – and it’s free!
