A Forgotten Kent Author, Patrick Wright on Uwe Johnson

A Forgotten Kent Author, Patrick Wright on Uwe Johnson

Canterbury - Rose Lane
Wednesday 8th September 18:30

Ticketed Talk by Patrick Wright. Masks, distanced seating and Track-and-Trace compulsory at this live event.Towards the end of 1974, a stranger arrived in the small town of Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. He could often be found sitting at the bar in the Napier Tavern, drinking lager and smoking Gauloises while flicking through the pages of the Kent Evening Post. ''Charles'' was the name he offered to his new acquaintances. But this unexpected immigrant was actually Uwe Johnson, originally from the Baltic province of Mecklenburg in the GDR, and already famous as the leading author of a divided Germany. What caused him to abandon West Berlin and spend the last nine years of his life in Sheerness, where he eventually completed his great New York novel Anniversaries in a house overlooking the outer reaches of the Thames Estuary? And what did he mean by detecting a ''moral utopia'' in a town that others, including his concerned friends, saw only as a busted slum on an island abandoned to ''deindustrialisation'' and a stranded Liberty ship full of unexploded bombs?
