Award-winning Irish writer Colm Tóibín returns to the festival for this in person event to present his new novel, The Magician.

We’re delighted to be welcoming one of our finest novelists, Colm Tóibín, back to Cambridge to present his new book The Magician. In this latest novel, Tóibín traces the life of Thomas Mann – a life full of success and yet riddled with contradiction. The book takes us from a provincial German city at the turn of the century, through both world wars, through the lens of the life of a troubled writer struggling with his closeted sexuality and familial complexities.

Through one life, Colm Tóibín tells the breath-taking story of the twentieth century. Don’t miss this event, where he will be in conversation with writer and broadcaster Alex Clark.

£10.00 – £12.00 - Single event ticket

This event will be held live for a socially distanced audience at the Cambridge Union. Face coverings are to be worn at all times in the venue
