Toby Litt: Cult Literature
£8/6 Box Office 01482 323638

What do The Wasp Factory, Oranges are not the Only Fruit and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas have in common with Women in Love and Wuthering Heights?

Toby Litt, hailed as Britains answer to Douglas Coupland, discusses his choice of cult literature, talks about what makes a cult classic, and reads from his own and other’s work. Litt’s list encompasses Bronte, Lawrence, Kerouac, Banks, Huxley, Borroughs, Burgess, Golding and many others.

Toby Litt is the author of Beatniks, Corpsing, Deadkidsongs and, most recently, Exhibitionism. Julie Birchill wrote of Litt, ‘if you don’t want to be him or have him, you’re dead’

‘This is a writer who doesn’t quail at taking big risks and who possesses the talent to bring them off…dauntingly good.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Everything Litt touches turns to gold’ Big Issue
