Award-winning author of If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things Jon McGregor returns with his highly anticipated new novel: Lean Fall Stand.
When an Antarctic research expedition goes wrong, the consequences are far-reaching – for the men involved and for their families back home.
Robert ‘Doc’ Wright, a veteran of Antarctic field work, holds the clues to what happened, but he is no longer able to communicate them. While Anna, his wife, navigates the sharp contours of her new life as a carer, Robert is forced to learn a whole new way to be in the world.
Join Jon in conversation about his stunning new novel as he reflects on the notions of heroism, sacrifice and selfishness, and the indomitable human impulse to tell our stories – even when words fail us. Jon will detail how his gripping story starts as an Antarctic adventure, and turns into an exploration of courage, illness, marriage, and compassion.
Profoundly humane and mesmerizingly engrossing, this is an evening about heartbreak, horror and hope that you do not want to miss.
