Adam Mars-Jones is a novelist, essayist and reviewer. He has the unusual distinction of having been selected as one of Granta's 'Best Young British Novelists' in 1983, and then again by the same magazine ten years later, even before his first novel, The Waters of Thirst, actually appeared. John Cromer, the hero of his second novel Pilcrow (short-listed for the Encore Award), is taken ill at the age of three and put to bed on medical advice. He's told not to move until further notice -- but he's much closer to being an explorer than a victim. He's the weakest hero in fiction, unless he's one of the strongest. Adam will be talking about his new novel, the first in a quartet, and answering questions about his work as a novelist, short story writer and critic for national newspapers. (karenharris)
