Will Self Friday Event

Today I was lucky enough to attend the first Friday Event of the 2012-2013 academic session. The speaker was Will Self who introduced and read from his new publication "Umbrella", which is on the shortlist for the Man Booker prize.

Cinema 1 at The Gft, Glasgow had a full audience, which the speaker likened to a "field of mushrooms".

Self did not disappoint, his talk was informative, intelligent and entertaining.
