Come to Foyles on Charing Cross Road in London this Thursday, as we launch the paperback of Lavie Tidhar's stunning 'Osama'


“A strange, melancholy and moving reflection, torquing politics with the fantastic, and vice virtuosically versa.” – China Miéville

 “Not a writer to mess around with half measures … brings to mind Philip K Dick’s seminal science fiction novel The Man in the High Castle.” – The Guardian

One of the most significant genre books of the year, the mass market paperback edition of Lavie Tidhar’s highly-praised and BSFA Award-nominated novel Osama will be launched this Thursday in London.

The events of 9/11 seemed to alter the world so radically that portraying them in fiction felt almost impossible. Israeli-born author Tidhar, already a controversial and outspoken voice, has risen to the challenge with his alternate-reality novel Osama.

Lavie will be in conversation with Sophia McDougall to discuss the novel, and how 9/11 and the figure of Bin Laden have shifted our perspective on the world and how fiction can respond to it, in what promises to be a fascinating and thought-provoking evening.

Date:  Thursday 4th October
Time:  6:30pm - 7:30pm
Venue:  the Gallery at Foyles, 3rd Floor, 113 - 119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB
Tickets: Free, but need to be reserved by emailing events@foyles.co.uk
