Martin Amis Talk

Here’s something which might interest Standpoint readers. On Wednesday 7th April, the New Culture Forum will be hosting a talk with Martin Amis. The conversation will centre around the themes of the sexual revolution and feminism which are dealt with in his latest novel, The Pregnant Widow. The talk begins at 7pm and will be at the Royal Society of Arts, 8 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6EZ (nearest tubes are Charing X and Embankment).

If you’d like to join us, could you RSVP to . It should be an interesting evening, and the novel will also be on sale.
