Sheila Heti and Gary Shteyngart at BOOKSLAM, The Tabernacle

February 27, 2014 @ 7:00 pm

We greet the penultimate evening of February and its wilfully controversial 28th day conclusion with an event so hip it looks back at us with contempt and, through a fug of smoke from its Gitanes, remarks, ‘You callin’ me hip, daddio? Even usin’ that vocab make you sound like a moldy fig right there.’ Quite. Joining us are GARY SHTEYNGART, the award-winning comic novelist whose ‘Little Failure: A Memoir‘ is published 35 years after he left Leningrad for the States, and SHEILA HETI, whose extraordinary book, ‘How Should A Person Be‘, is one of the most talked about of the last year and puts the ‘meta’ into ‘just met a girl’. Music comes from South London’s finest, JAKE ISAAC, and all will be seamlessly stitched (is such a thing possible?) by the man who brings the yam to the Book Slam fam, NIKESH SHUKLA
