ROUND TABLE: Boys to Men
International Festival of Authors, Sunday, October 26 at 12pm
Three critically acclaimed authors discuss right and wrong, the loss of innocence and the journey to manhood in the lives of their male characters. Mark Medley will host.

Adam Foulds completed his MA in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia and now lives in South London. Foulds is the recipient of the 2008 Costa Poetry Award for The Broken Word, and his novel The Quickening Maze was shortlisted for the 2009 Man Booker Prize. Foulds presents In the Wolf’s Mouth, a novel set mostly in Sicily during WWII. With great lyrical intensity, it explores war and the Mafia, innocence and corruption, and history as an accumulation of the irrevocable.
