Book launch: Capital by John Lanchester – 6pm, today, Firth Hall
Capital is a post-crash state-of-the nation novel told with compassion and humour.
Mick Moran (Professor of Government, Manchester Business School) and Sue Vice (Professor of English Literature, University of Sheffield) will give their reactions to the book, John Lanchester will then explain how and why he wrote both Whoops! and Capital, and will discuss how the economy and indeed the crisis have moved on since their initial publication.
