Tom Crewe presents 
The New Life
In conversation with Colm Tóibín

From longtime editor for the London Review of Books comes the debut novel The New Life by Tom Crewe. Our modern conception of homosexuality in history is exclusively of danger, of suppression, of Oscar Wilde wasting away in a jail cell. But in reality, while those dangers were very real, it is also true that gay men and women found one another and formed their own communities, their own ways of staying safe while staying true to themselves. This moment was one when there was hope that the future would be a more accepting, more welcoming place. This side of history is just as important, and just as relevant, to remember today, when the walls seem to be closing in once more. Celebrating Tom's debut is Colm Tóibín, an early champion of Tom's work and a prolific author, including his upcoming essay collection A Guest at the Feast. Join us for a reading, discussion, and Q&A for what is sure to be a revelatory evening.
