Michael Arditti in York

07 Sep 2018

Award-winning author Michael Arditti will be at York Explore Library and Archive at 6:30pm on Thursday 13thSeptember to talk about his latest work, Of Men and Angels. The novel explores the history of homophobia in art and religion, with five interweaving stories from around the globe and across the centuries. Abounding in characters as vivid as they are varied, from temple prostitutes and palace eunuchs, through fanatical friars and humanist poets, to Bedouin tribesmen, Russian exiles and, of course, angels, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, penetrating insight and profound human sympathy.

Tickets can be booked through www.exploreyork.org.uk/events or any public library in York.
