Press Release: Events
Martin Amis Launch Event 'The Pregnant Widow'

Posted at 7:51AM Friday 22 Jan 2010

World famous novelist Martin Amis will launch his controversial and highly-anticipated new novel The Pregnant Widow at The Martin Harris Centre at The University of Manchester on Monday 8th February 2010 at 6.30pm. This will be his first public launch event for the new novel.

The Pregnant Widow, Amis's 12th novel, has already attracted significant media attention in advance of its official publication on 4th February 2010. The Observer reported "Amis's 12th book reveals that, far from losing his youthful outlook he has rediscovered it. The Pregnant Widow is a return not just to form, but to more juvenile days." The book which frankly examines the sexual revolution of the 1960s – is likely to generate debate due to its autobiographical nature and its engagement with sexual politics. It is the most eagerly anticipated novel of the year and Martin Amis at his fearless best.

Amis who is currently Professor of Creative Writing at the Centre for New Writing at The University of Manchester will read from The Pregnant Widow and then discuss the novel on stage with Lisa Allardice, editor of the Guardian Review before taking questions from the audience.

Event organisers are pleased to announce that a podcast interview will be available after the launch event. The podcast will be available in the next issue of the Manchester Review http://www.themanchesterreview.co.uk/
